UPDATE: Additional Details of Allegations Against Rickey
A Sunrise Beach businessman charged in two cases in Camden County allegedly tried to hit a woman with his car before punching her in the face. Authorities have moved to revoke bond for Tom Rickey. In April, he allegedly slashed someone’s tires and lured two people to an area around Windjammer Drive where he sprayed them with bear spray in apparent retaliation for a fight the victim was involved in with Rickey’s brother. Later this year, in September, Rickey was involved in another incident in Sunrise Beach in which police say he tried to hit his ex-girlfriend with a car and force her vehicle off the road. The ex-girlfriend says he grabbed her by the hair and punched her repeatedly in the face. He’s also accused of threatening her and her family members. The alleged assault took place with two young kids present. The charges against Rickey include assault, domestic assault, endangering the welfare of a child, property damage, and careless and imprudent driving.
The search is on for a Sunrise Beach businessman, apparently, wanted by local law enforcement. Courthouse records show that 31-year-old Tom Gregory Rickey, the second…with a past history of financial exploitation of the elderly or disabled and stealing…is currently on bond for two separate cases in Camden County. He’s charged with two felony counts of assault and one felony count of property damage from an incident which, allegedly, happened back in April in Osage Beach. He’s also charged with two felony counts of endangering the welfare of child, one felony count of domestic assault and one misdemeanor count of careless and imprudent driving in connection to an alleged incident which happened on September 11th in Sunrise Beach. Rickey, Junior, is scheduled to appear in court on December 4th on the charges stemming from the incident in Osage Beach while a warrant has been issued revoking his bond on the charges stemming from the incident in Sunrise Beach. The original bond on those charges had been set at $250-thousand cash-only before it was reduced in early October to $20-thousand with a bondsman.
