COVINGTON -- A disagreement turned disastrous for a 47-year-old Alcovy Way resident Sunday night when a woman leaving his house ran over him, according to the Newton County Sheriff's Office.
Marion Felder, 49, of 3530 Old Mill Road, Rutledge, was arrested and charged with duty to stop at scene of accident — hit and run — leaving the scene of an accident in connection with the incident that occurred around 9 p.m.
"She was at the victim's house and she got in her car and was going to leave," said NCSO spokesman Lt. Keith Crum. "He was going to stop her and talk. They had had some kind of disagreement. She put it in reverse and caught him between her moving vehicle and a parked vehicle. She did substantial damage to him and the vehicle."
The woman left the scene and witnesses called the NCSO. They were able to give a vehicle description and identify Felder and she was located in Morgan County that same night. The Georgia State Patrol was called to work the injury portion of the crash.
"When her vehicle was located there was damage to it where witnesses indicated it would be, there was transfer paint from the vehicle she hit and there were plastic parts from her vehicle that were missing that were found at the scene," Crum said.
The victim was transported by ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center where he was treated and released.
In other crime news, a juvenile Newton County High School student became ill and was determined to be inebriated while in the In School Suspension room around 12:40 p.m. Thursday.
According to the NCSO incident report, the school resource officer was called to the room and found the "male student sitting at a desk leaning over the desk. The student was covered in vomit."
EMS was called to transport the student to Newton Medical Center for treatment.
The report states the assistant principal searched the student's book bag and found a plastic water bottle containing a clear liquid that she believed to be an alcoholic beverage, possibly Vodka. The school resource officer stated the liquid smelled like alcohol to him, as well.
The student's mother was notified and came to the school and the matter was turned over to Juvenile Court.
