A former Oberlin High School basketball player recently indicted on charges of kidnapping, robbery and extortion after being involved in a fender-bender had just been released on bond from Cuyahoga County Jail when police arrested him on the secret indictment out of Lorain County earlier this month.

Caleb Hughley, 19, was indicted on charges stemming from a Sept. 6 incident in which he allegedly threatened the other driver involved in the minor car crash that he would call the police unless the other driver gave him $200. Hughley also allegedly indicated that he had a gun on him at the time of the incident.

Hughley was arrested on the Lorain County secret indictment Dec. 22, even though the indictment was originally filed Oct. 19, according to court documents.

The reason for the delay is Hughley was being held in Cuyahoga County Jail on charges of aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and kidnapping for an alleged incident in Brook Park on Oct. 12, according to the Brook Park Police Department.

Hughley and Adrian Kilgore, 19, also of Oberlin, allegedly broke into a home on Middlebrook Boulevard just before midnight and robbed the residents, the police report said. One of the men also shot himself in the leg during the robbery, police said, but they didn’t identify whether it was Kilgore or Hughley.

Kilgore still is being held in Cuyahoga County Jail on $100,000 bond, according to court documents.

Hughley, however, had been held on $150,000 bond, which was then reduced to $100,000 bond Oct. 30. On Dec. 20, Hughley’s bond was reduced to $10,000, which he posted and was released the following day.

His freedom was short-lived, however, as Lorain County Sheriff’s deputies arrested him on the secret indictment about 5:30 a.m. Dec. 22. He is being held on $25,000 bond in Lorain County Jail.
