MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Pontotoc County Sheriff’s deputy who shot a man on Beale Street has been indicted.

John Logan has been indicted on one count using a firearm to commit a felony and two counts of aggravated assault.

The incident happened this past April when Logan and Mark Martinez started fighting.

Martinez was shot six times by Deputy Logan after Martinez reportedly groped a female friend of Logan.

Both Logan and Martinez had been drinking and Martinez said he doesn’t remember much.

After a fight, Logan fired his personal, off-duty weapon at Martinez.

The shooting was ruled self-defense and Deputy Logan wasn’t charged.
