Man charged with endangerment, DUI after accident with child in car

RICHMOND — Brian H. Abner, 38, of Lee Drive, was arrested on wanton endangerment and other charges Friday after he was involved in a traffic accident, according to a Richmond police report.

At approximately 8:26 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Highland Park Drive to investigate a report of an accident in which the driver was possibly intoxicated.

Upon arrival, officers discovered Abner had lost control of his vehicle and struck a tree.

A 9-year-old child was in the vehicle when the accident occurred, and Abner was determined by officers to be intoxicated. The child was not injured in the accident, and was released to a responsible relative, according to the report.

Abner was charged with second-degree wanton endangerment, driving under the influence, possession of an open alcohol container in a vehicle and driving without registration or insurance.

He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

Arrest made in assault case

Police charged Darold G. Patton, 35, of Villa Drive, with second degree assault after a Friday altercation.

At approximately 12:03 p.m., Patton and another man were engaged in an argument in the parking lot of the Speedway on the Eastern Bypass, according to a police news release. During the dispute, Patton allegedly approached the victim's vehicle and struck him twice in the face, breaking his nose.

BB wound leads to assault charge

Melissa A. Nichols, 24, of Big Hill Avenue, was charged with assault Sunday after she reportedly shot a man with a BB gun.

At approximately 7:12 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the 300 block of Big Hill Avenue. There the officer met with a male victim, who was walking with his girlfriend, sister and four-day-old child.

The man told the officer Nichols pointed a BB gun at him from inside her residence and shot him in the side. He suffered a minor bleeding wound.

Nichols was charged with second-degree assault and lodged in the detention center.
