Grundy County Law Enforcement Center

The Grundy County Sheriff’s Office reports two area men were scheduled for the Associate Division of Grundy County Circuit Court Tuesday, October 13th after writs from the Western Missouri Correctional Center of Cameron Monday, October 12th.

Thirty-four-year-old Robert Lee Ellis of Trenton has been charged with the felonies of resisting arrest, detention, or stop by fleeing—creating a substantial risk of serious injury or death to any person; possession of a controlled substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana or synthetic cannabinoid; two counts of assault—third degree; and driving while intoxicated—physical injury. His bond is $35,000 in cash only.

Court documents say Deputy Austin Taul attempted to make a lawful stop of a vehicle being operated by Ellis in March, and Ellis resisted by fleeing in such a manner that created a substantial risk of serious physical injury or death to other persons in that he fled at a high rate of speed and failed to obey traffic signs in a residential area. Ellis is also accused of possessing methamphetamine, causing physical injury to Bradley Shelton and Ashley Donahue by running a stop sign and crashing into vehicles Shelton and Donahue occupied, and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of meth.

Thirty-four-year-old Larry Wayne Peace of Cameron has been charged with felony assault—third degree and misdemeanor assault—fourth degree. His bond is $10,000 cash only.

Court documents accuse Peace of causing physical injury to Devin Moss in June by hitting him with closed fists, causing a cut lip and swollen eye. Peace is also accused of recklessly causing pain to Jessica Thomas by hitting her, causing her to fall to the ground.
