AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

The Potter County Grand Jury indicted the motorcycle driver who allegedly led deputies on a high speed chase and dragged one of them earlier this month.

On Wednesday March 22nd, 34-year-old Justin McIntire was indicted for aggravated assault on a public servant and evading arrest. 

The incident happened on March 9th. 

Officials say Deputy Justin Shaber pulled over McIntire for speeding. He then took off, dragging the deputy with him. Shaber fired one shot toward McIntire, but no one was injured. 

According to 47th District Attorney Randall Sims, the grand jury 'no billed' Shaber and he will return back to work on Thursday.

Amarillo Special Crimes is still looking for the red 2003 Kawasaki motorcycle involved in the incident. 

McIntire faces 25 years to life in prison for both charges. 

According to court documents, McIntire has a criminal history dating back years for burglary and drug possession.
