Grindstaff was charged with one count of wanton endangerment and was being held on $200,000 bail. Grindstaff was accused of by utilities in a similar incident in 2021.

During Thursday’s bond reduction hearing, Kanawha County Circuit Judge Dave Hardy ruled that Grindstaff be placed on home confinement, be fitted with a GPS device and undergo a seven-month treatment program at the VA Medical Center in Clarksburg.
