(COLUMBUS,) - Jurors in a reckless homicide case Thursday night found an Elizabethtown man not guilty of three felonies following an eight-day trial in Bartholomew Circuit Court.

25-year-old Jacob A. Tolbert of Elizabethtown had been accused of engaging in criminal behavior that resulted in the April 28, 2013, hit-and-run death of 27-year-old Thomas L."Tommy" Brazzell of Vallonia in a parking lot outside what was then Caddies Pub.

Tolbert was facing two Class B felonies and one Class C felony, as well as a misdemeanor marijuana charge.

The jury only found him guilty of the marijuana charge.

According to police, Tolbert was accused of backing a pickup truck over Brazzell outside the pub and then fleeing the scene.

Brazzell, formerly of Bedford, was a personal trainer at a Seymour health club.

County Coroner Larry Fisher says Brazzell died almost immediately of multiple trauma to the head.
