Schoolcraft federal indictment
A Cocke County convicted felon who was carrying a .16-gauge shotgun, a 9mm Luger and a sawed-off shotgun when he led deputies on a chase in June has been indicted in federal court system. A federal grand jury in Greeneville indicted Randy William Schoolcraft, 33, Cottonwood Way, Newport, for two counts of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and possession of an unregistered shotgun that has a barrel length shorter than 18 inches. Schoolcraft eventually stopped on Clear Creek Road. The chase began on Woodson Road. “The offender ignored my verbal commands and made comments that he would rather me just kill him,” Deputy James Cupp recounted. As Deputy Cupp was trying to take the holstered 9mm handgun, Schoolcraft ignored the officer’s commands, saying “he would rather die.”
