A Calhoun man, James Forest Blankenship, 25, waived a preliminary hearing in magistrate Rick Postalwait's court yesterday, related to charges of wanton endangerment, destruction of property and conspiracy to commit a felony.

The case is being sent to Calhoun Circuit Court for grand jury consideration.

The charges stem from an incident on May 16 when Blankenship (pictured left) was allegedly involved in shooting a vehicle at the Norma Joy Freshour residence on Nobe Road, and tossing a deactivated grenade into the yard.

A few days later the Freshour residence was burned to the ground, with arson suspected as the reason.

Blankenship is being held on $45,000 bond in Central Regional Jail.
