NORWICH After being indicted last week on four felony charges accusing him of shooting two men, Lee M. Bush appeared in Chenango County Court at the request of the District Attorney’s Office Tuesday.
Assistant District Attorney Stephen Dunshee sought to have Bush thrown back in jail because less than 24 hours after his release Sept. 16, he was charged with possession of marijuana.
Bush was released without bail after initially being held on $10,000. According to police, Bush shot two men in his driveway with a 12-gauge shotgun, hitting them with birdshot at about 9:54 p.m., Sept. 5. The men were allegedly fleeing Bush’s Court Street residence in the City of Norwich following an “alcohol and drug-fueled argument,” said Norwich Police Chief Joseph Angelino.
