The owner and operator of the Vortex ride was indicted Tuesday on assault charges.

The Vortex was the ride at the State Fair where several people were seriously hurt this past October.

Owner Joshua Macaroni and Timothy Tutterrow each face three counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious bodily injury.

Here's what happened, as riders were getting off the ride it unexpectedly started moving again. Some riders were flung 20 feet into the air.
