A Winston-Salem man was arrested in Iredell County after hitting a man with his car, leaving the scene, and running a witness following him off the road, according to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office.
A 911 call was received Monday from the Statesville Auto Auction around 2 p.m. in reference to someone being run over by a vehicle in the parking lot. A.C.E. Team deputies were in the area and responded.
The 911 caller, who was in a tow truck, was following the vehicle, which had left the scene after hitting the victim, deputies said.
The caller followed the driver on I-77, to I-40, and onto Glenway Drive in Statesville while relaying information to 911 operators. While following the suspect, the caller was involved in a vehicle accident and later told deputies the suspect had forced him off the road.
Deputies responded to the crash on Glenway Dr. and met with the tow truck driver. The man he was following had left the scene, the report states.
Other deputies went to the Auto Auction where the initial incident had taken place. Iredell County EMS responded and transported the victim of the vehicular assault to the emergency room with severe injuries, including a fractured leg.
Deputies learned from witnesses that the incident had started over a repossessed vehicle.
The victim, a wrecker driver for a repo company, had repossessed a car from Winston-Salem and towed the vehicle to the Auto Auction to be stored.
The suspect, later identified as Jason Faulkner, 31, was the registered owner of the car and was behind on payments. Once Mr. Faulkner learned his car had been repossessed, he followed the tow truck to Statesville and the Auto Auction.
Faulkner told the repo company he needed to get some personal belongings out of the car before getting into the vehicle and trying to drive away.
The wrecker driver tried to stop him, but was struck by the front bumper as Faulkner was driving out of the parking lot.
The witness then followed Faulkner in his tow truck and called 911.
Faulkner was later located and arrested. He was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, felony larceny of a motor vehicle, and aggressive driving. He was placed under a $200,000 secured bond.
