A small-town mayor is fighting crime with his own hands. Over the weekend, the mayor nearly escaped getting hit by a car after he chased down the driver who left the scene of an accident.
Witnesses say the mayor was walking down the street when a truck ran into a parked car in a bar’s parking lot. The driver of the truck continued down the road until he stopped at a red light. The town’s mayor then ran after the truck to stop him from leaving he scene. But the man continued to drive after the light turned green, despite the mayor standing in front of his vehicle.
Luckily, the mayor was not seriously injured and able to get a good description of the man and his truck. Arrests were made the next day and the driver was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and aggravated assault.
