Motorist faces charges he ran over two people

LOUISBURG -- Police arrested a Louisburg man they allege tried to end an altercation outside a sweepstakes cafe by running over two people.

Authorities allege Raesha'd Wright's efforts failed when they arrested him during the early morning hours of Nov. 12.

According to Police Chief Jason Abbott, officers responded to 135 S. Bickett Boulevard -- the parking lot of the I-One Business Center sweepstakes -- and spotted a vehicle they believed to have been involved in a collision.

Further investigation, Abbott said, revealed that two groups had gotten into an altercation inside the business and it spilled out into the parking lot.

Authorities allege that Wright, who had been involved in the altercation, tried to run over two people in the parking lot.

Wright did not hit the individuals, but did hit another vehicle and some property at the county's farmers' market.

Wright, 21, was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, hit and run, leaving the scene of property damage, reckless driving with wanton disregard, and injury to personal property.

He was placed in jail in lieu of an $80,000 bond.

It was not clear when he is next slated to appear in court.
