Charges have been upgraded for the son of an Athens City Councilman accused of hitting his parents with a vehicle.
Sean Travis was facing two counts of first-degree domestic violence assault for the incident. Now, he is charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of domestic violence first-degree (assault), assault second-degree and criminal mischief first-degree.
Sean Travis was arrested in September after officers found his parents, Frank and Sharon Travis, injured outside of their home.
Frank Travis, District 3 Councilman, had a partial leg amputation after the incident.
