Trouble for a Cumberland County woman whose bond was revoked after being charged with making threats against local schools while waiting sentencing in an unrelated traffic case is now indicted on the new charge.

The Cumberland County Grand Jury returned a true bill charging Nicole LouAnn O’Neal, 31, Open Meadow Lane, with making a false report, a Class C felony, on Sept. 3, 2019. She is one of dozens facing indictment by the grand jury.

The document charging O’Neal states that she “intentionally circulate(d) a report of a past, present or impending fire or other emergency, knowing that the report is false and knowing it will cause action of any sort by an official or volunteer agency organized to deal with those emergencies.”

O’Neal pleaded guilty Aug. 7 to charges relating to a crash on E. First St. near Dayton Spur Rd. that injured Crossville attorney Jonathan Hamby. She pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, evading arrest and driving under the influence.

O’Neal was to have a sentencing hearing on Oct. 7 at which time Judge Gary McKenzie was determine the length of sentence and how her sentence would be served.

On Sept. 3, Sheriff Casey Cox received an email that included a photo of O’Neal holding a handgun, threatening school violence. During a bond revocation hearing in October, Cox testified that he actually received multiple emails from O’Neal and the nature was great enough that he contacted federal authorities to report the incident.

Those close to the case have indicated they question whether there was intent to carry out the threat and believe the incident was based on “someone wanting attention.”

In November. McKenzie sentenced O’Neal to five years in prison at 30%. She and others indicted by the grand jury will make first appearances in court on new charges Jan. 17.
