A Jackson County Grand Jury has indicted a Scottsboro man in the death of bicyclist in April.

In April, Scottsboro police officers responded to an accident in the 10900 block of Alabama Highway 79. When officers arrived, they discovered that the bicyclist, Roald Joseph Richard, 54 of Scottsboro, had been struck and fatally injured by a vehicle.

Ferguson was booked into the Jackson County Jail Tuesday morning and later released on a $25,500 bond.
