A Columbus Municipal Judge has reduced the bond amount of a man charged with firing a shot at a Columbus Police Officer. Isham David Conner, 26, of Brooksville, appeared before Columbus City Judge Marc Amos Monday and had his bond reduced for aggravated assault on a police officer from $100,000 to $10,000. Conner’s bond for his second second charge, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, remained at $10,000, bringing Conner’s total bond amount to $20,000. Conner was represented by attorney Donna Smith.
Conner was arrested on October 28 with Cheyenne Delove Smith, 41, of 1100 Ash Street Columbus, who was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, after a stand off with local law enforcement officers.
An officer with the Columbus Police Department was making a routine traffic stop on the corner of 18th Street North when a gun was allegedly fired in the officer’s direction.
The suspect in the alleged shooting was identified as Conner, who goes by the nickname “DJ.”
Conner fled the scene and ran into a light blue house at the corner of Ash Street. An attempt was made to have Conner surrender to officers, but was unsuccessful. Law enforcement officers from the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office and CPD worked together to extract Conner and Smith from the home.
Conner’s original bond amount was set in Lowndes County Justice Court. According to the Lowndes County Detention Center, Conner has made bond and he has been released from the LCADC.2
