Abilene Police: Relative nearly runs over man, crashes into garage

From Abilene Police Department spokesman George Spindler:

Just after midnight Tuesday, officers responded to an injured subject call at a residence in the 2400 block of Walnut Street. APD dispatch had received notification from a male victim reporting that a male relative had tried to run him over and then crashed into a garage. A description of the suspect vehicle was provided to Patrol Division but the vehicle and suspect had fled and were not located during the preliminary investigation. The 66-year-old victim sustained injuries that included lacerations to his scalp and back. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment. A report for aggravated assault was taken and this investigation continues.

At about 4:55 p.m. Monday, Officers Martin Walker and John Lopez responded to a motor vehicle collision in the 2900 block of Pine Street. Concerned citizens contacted APD dispatch about the collision. The preliminary investigation revealed that there was a witness to the collision. A female motorist driving a 2010 Chevy Cobalt had drove into an intersection and into the path of a south-bound motorist driving a 2007 Chevy Suburban. The Cobalt was occupied by only the female driver which failed to yield the right-of-way to the other motorist. The Suburban was occupied by two females. Officer Lopez contacted the driver of the Cobalt and smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her. The driver acknowledged that she had been drinking. The driver conducted standard field sobriety tests which she performed poorly. The driver of the Suburban reported a non-incapacitating injury but was not transported for medical treatment. Both vehicles sustained minor damage. The driver of the Cobalt was arrested for misdemeanor DWI and a blood sample was retrieved as part of this ongoing investigation.

At about 5 p.m. Monday, Officer Robert Brannon responded to a forgery in progress at a business in the 4300 block of Buffalo Gap Road. APD dispatch had been notified by an employee of the business concerning the allegation that a counterfeit $100 bill was used by a male patron to pay for merchandise. Officer Brannon arrived and contacted the involved parties. The subject spoke with officers and gave Officer Brannon permission to conduct a search of his person. The search revealed a dark-brown substance that tested positive for heroin. The subject was arrested for felony Possession of a Controlled Substance (heroin). The counterfeit bill was seized and a forgery report was taken.
