Assault by Auto Alleged

An incident on Clinton City Streets eight days ago is cited with yesterday’s arrest of 19-year-old Rasheed Shykwan Watts of 115 G & S Lane, Clinton. Clinton Department of Public Safety served a warrant charging him with Domestic Violence of a High and Aggravated Nature. A warrant states that in Clinton on April 12th the defendant showed extreme indifference to human life by aiming the motor vehicle he was operating at the victim’s motor vehicle, causing her to veer to the left side of the roadway to avoid being struck. This reportedly caused her to fear great bodily harm and/or injury. Rasheed Shykwan Watts was being held overnight in the Laurens County Detention Center, pending a bond hearing today.
