On Wednesday, a Dukes County grand jury returned 46 indictments against Felix Reagan of Oak Bluffs. Reagan remains held following the second of two dangerousness hearings in Edgartown District Court. The indictments bring Reagan’s legal matters into Dukes County Superior Court, where potential penalties are more severe than in district court.
Reagan was arraigned in Edgartown District Court in December on charges of kidnapping, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (butcher knife), and other charges. He pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him at the time.
Some of the indictments appear to stem from incidents in Oak Bluffs where Reagan allegedly invaded a woman’s home and behaved aggressively — at one point allegedly pressing the tip of a butcher knife to the back of her neck. Reagan later allegedly barricaded himself in his mother’s house, taunted police, and made refernces to suicide by cop. The Vineyard tactical team eventually ousted him with chemical-irritant rounds, according to a police report.
Other indictments appear to stem from another set of district court charges. Those charges include rape and indecent assault and battery. Reagan was accused of drugging someone, sexually assaulting the person, filming the act, and posting it on the internet. He pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Most of the indictments stem from events alleged to have occurred in Oak Bluffs, while a handful are alleged to have occurred in Edgartown.
Reagan was indicted on 11 counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14, two counts of rape, 10 counts of photographing an unsuspecting nude person, five counts of disseminating a photograph of an unsuspecting nude person, three counts of assault and battery on a family or household member, two counts of aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of witness intimidation, two counts of threating to commit a crime, five counts of violating an abuse prevention order, assault and battery on a police officer, armed burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon, resisting arrest, and disturbing the peace.
Reagan is scheduled for arraignment in Dukes County Superior Court on July 21.
