These men were charged with civil rights intimidation on 7/10/11 James Smiley, 27, and Kyle Montgomery, 21, Colton Partin, 21.

The civil rights case against three men accused to throwing fireworks and racial slurs at residents of a public housing complex is going to the Hamilton County grand jury.

This morning in Hamilton County General Sessions Court, Colton Partin, Danny Smiley and Kyle Montgomery waived their rights to preliminary hearings.

Judge Clarence Shattuck then sent the cases to the grand jury.

The trio reportedly threw the fireworks toward East Lake Courts early in the morning of July 9. They now face charges of civil rights intimidation.

I bet they are really sorry about this now. After they have been caught. They should be very ashamed of themselves.

Along with any sentencing, they should be made to openly apologize to their victims.
