Twenty-seven-year-old Timothy “Green Light” Teasley was booked by the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday of this week and charged with aggravated assault and felony murder.

Teasley has been incarcerated since his conviction for aggravated assault and robbery charges in September of 2012.
