Worthy also cleared by grand jurors

Details are sketchy but the case against Morehouse police chief Vernon Worthy was no-billed by the December term grand jury. It is unclear why the case went back before this grand jury after Worthy was indicted by grand jurors here in March. The charges were brought by Nathaniel Rooks who encountered Worthy while hunting. At preliminary hearing, Rooks testified he was in a deer stand when he saw someone enter the field. He said he climbed down from his stand, took off a camouflage mask, slung his deer rifle over his shoulder and approached the man he later learned was Worthy. Worthy then pulled a pistol on Rooks and ordered him to lie face down on the grass. He also forced Rooks at gunpoint to roll away from his rifle and toss away his cell phone, Rooks testified. ”He told me ‘I will blow your (expletive deleted) brains out if you try anything’,” Rooks said. He added that he feared for his life and started praying aloud only to hear Worthy say, “God is the only (expletive deleted) who can help you right now”.
