A Tullahoma man is facing up to 14 years in prison after being convicted in Coffee County Circuit Court Friday. Correll Marcellus Baker, 21, of Tullahoma was charged with reckless endangerment and robbery last year at Bonnaroo. According to investigators, the vendor, George Panagoulis, was standing at the intersection of Highway 41 and 55 sealing tickets to the annual event when a car operated by Dru Scott Talley pulled up to the man and Baker pretended to be interested in purchasing tickets. The vendor handed tickets to the pair to look at and Talley started to drive off with the man hanging on to Baker. The pair dragged the man to J&G pizza where he fell off. He was transported to a hospital for treatment. According to the district attorneys office Baker faces eight to 12 years on the robbery charge and one to two years on the reckless endangerment. Circuit Court Judge Vanessa Jackson will sentence Baker on March 14.
