CARROLL COUNTY, Ga. -- An ex-Georgia State Patrol trooper now has new charges against him in the deaths of two teens in 2015.
Anthony J. Scott was re-indicted on Thursday – this time on multiple counts including two of vehicular homicide in the second degree, two counts of serious injury by vehicle, violating oath of office and one count each of speeding and reckless driving.
The counts stem from the deaths of 17-year-old Kylie Hope Lindsey and 16-year-old Isabella Alise Chinchilla in Carroll County on U.S. Highway 27. The crash also seriously injured two others.
Scott was fired after investigators determined that he had been speeding at the time of the crash even though he was not on a call and didn't have his blue lights or siren on.
Police believe that the victims were attempting a left turn when he struck them.
Despite that, Scott originally faced no charges when he went before a grand jury in February of 2016, leading family to suggest he had gotten special treatment. That changed later that year when he faced a grand jury yet again in November of the same year. But at that time, the grand jury only indicted him for reckless driving speeding.
Now, a third indictment has maintained the original charges and added several more.
While no longer a trooper, the city of Buchanan lists Scott as a sitting member of their city council.
