Man charged with wanton endangerment, assault after domestic dispute

RICHMOND — Richmond police Friday charged James R. Gibbs, 30, of Foxhaven Drive, with first-degree wanton endangerment and several other offenses after he reportedly fled the scene of a domestic dispute.

Officers were dispatched to E and East Irvine streets about 10:43 p.m. Thursday in response to reports of a fight between a man and a woman in a vehicle, according to an RPD report. The officers met with the woman involved in the incident, who told them she had attempted to quell an argument between Gibbs and a relative by driving him to another family member’s home.

While they were driving, Gibbs grabbed the steering wheel of the vehicle and caused it to cross into the opposing lane, the woman said. The woman tried to apply the brakes, but before the vehicle stopped, Gibbs slammed the gear shift into park, the report stated.

The woman then exited the vehicle at which time Gibbs struck her three times on the top of the head, the release stated. Gibbs then fled, the woman said.

The vehicle was towed from the scene with possible transmission damage.

Officers found Gibbs the following evening on Hallie Irvine Street and took him into custody. In addition to wanton endangerment, he was charged with first-degree criminal mischief, fourth-degree assault and menacing, the release stated.

Gibbs was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Monday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.
