Man arrested for attempting to run over ex-girlfriend, bystander
WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - A man was arrested on Friday for allegedly trying to run over two women with his truck.
One of the two victims stated that she had been walking down the road when she saw Shaun Macdonald, 42, arguing with a woman in the 1600 block of Monroe St. Macdonald began yelling from the driver’s seat of his truck, telling the woman to get into the vehicle.
When the victim approached to see if the woman needed help, Macdonald allegedly began swearing at her. He proceeded to spin his tires and drive onto the sidewalk, forcing the victim to step backwards to avoid being hit. Eyewitnesses and surveillance footage from Monroe St. Grocery reportedly confirmed the altercation.
When questioned by police, Macdonald allegedly said he’d been arguing with his ex-girlfriend, and that he had only driven in a circle around the two women before driving away.
Macdonald was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Detectives also charged him with possession of marijuana after a small amount of the drug was found in his vehicle.
His total bond was set at $20,500 and he has been released from the Wichita County Jail.
