by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer said he is hoping to file charges very soon on what will possibly be felony charges against Sylvester Provencio, 21, and Nicholas Reedy, 33, both of Caldwell. Both are currently in Sumner County jail for the alleged assault of Gregory Schneider, 53, and Bryan Nispel, 55, of Caldwell on early April 22 morning in south rural Sumner County.
Spencer said he has interviewed witnesses and is currently working closely with Sumner County Sheriff Detective Jeff Hawkins, in hopes of submitting charges sometime this weekend.
The two men will likely face charges of aggravated battery, simple battery, disorderly conduct and criminal depravation of property. Spencer said he will not pursue the aggravated robbery charge which was listed in the original Sumner County Sheriff report.
Provencio and Reedy are accused of assaulting Schneider and Nispel who were in two separate vehicles driving home at around 12:15 a.m. Spencer said part of the delay with formal charges is because Schneider has been undergoing treatment at Caldwell Hospital suffering from a busted ear drum, two cracked ribs and various facial scratches and abrasions. According to a source, he was released at 4 p.m. today.
