GREENEVILLE (AP) - Grand jurors in Greeneville have indicted state Rep. David Hawk on a felony reckless endangerment count after a March incident involving his estranged wife.

The Greeneville Sun reported the indictment was returned Monday by a Greene County grand jury, which declined to formally charge the Republican lawmaker with domestic assault.

The indictment states Hawk recklessly caused bodily injury to his spouse, Crystal Goan Hawk.

Hawk has maintained he is innocent of the charges. He is scheduled to appear Friday for arraignment in Greene County Criminal Court.
