After hitting a pedestrian and driving away, a Sugar Land man piled even more charges upon himself.
Monday afternoon shortly before 5 p.m., Sugar Land police were called to investigate an auto pedestrian accident near the intersection of State Highway 6S and Williams Trace. According to police, a witness saw a green truck strike a pedestrian at the intersection and then drive away. The witness was able to provide police with suspect vehicle information as well as a direction of travel as he had followed the truck when it failed to stop.
While the witness was following the suspect, the suspect pulled over on Grants Lake Boulevard and threatened the witness with what he believed to be a gun. The witness returned to the accident scene and notified police.
A short time later the suspect vehicle was located at a residence on Blue Meadow. As officers converged on the home, they could hear a man and a woman fighting in the back yard. Immediately officers approached the backyard and found the accident suspect assaulting his wife.
The unidentified suspect was taken into custody and positively linked to the hit and run accident on 6 and Williams Trace. He has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault, failure to stop and render aid, and assault family violence.
