According to the indictment, Steven Anthony Eberhart repeatedly stabbed Athens-Clarke County police Sgt. Courtney Gale and intended to murder her.
Gale was working in uniform as a security guard at a grocery store on December 11th when she was stabbed 10 times, including one cut that nearly severed her femoral artery. Gale was unconscious for two weeks and underwent several surgeries during a 45-day hospital stay.
The grand jury also indicted Eberhart on 10 other charges including aggravated assault on a police officer and another aggravated assault charge for allegedly threatening the store manager with a knife during the incident.
