LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Lafayette man is accused of intentionally hitting a car with four people inside, twice.
Rodney Mayes, 23, is charged with criminal mischief, criminal recklessness, and battery with a deadly weapon.
Lafayette police said a woman, and three men she knew, went to confront Mayes Monday over some electronics he reportedly took from her house hours earlier. Police said after an argument, Mayes got in his car and hit the car with the four victims from behind.
He then allegedly went around the block to the other alley entrance and hit them from the front as well.
Right now, Mayes is only formally charged in connection to the car attack. But at the time of his arrest, he faced preliminary charges from the initial incident at the woman's home, including burglary, theft, and domestic battery.
That is being treated as a separate incident.
