Boyfriend accused of chasing, shooting at ex

May 8, 2019

When the woman walked out of her house, she saw her ex pull up in a van.

She got into her vehicle and drove away, but her former boyfriend, Antwon L. Pollard, 32, followed her vehicle, according to court documents.

She thought she lost him, but Pollard, of the 4000 block of Warsaw Street, found her. This time, he started to crash his van into her vehicle, causing her to lose control.

He also pulled out a gun and shot at the woman and her new boyfriend, court documents said.

Driving faster in an effort to get away, she crashed her car into a tree at South Anthony Boulevard and Capitol Avenue.

Pollard was charged Tuesday with battery by means of a deadly weapon, two counts of attempt to commit battery by means of a deadly weapon and criminal recklessness by shooting into the vehicle.

The incident, about 3 p.m. April 30, appeared to be the result of his ex-girlfriend dating a new man, court records said. The relationship began about three months earlier, the new boyfriend told police.

Pollard and his ex had been together for about 14 years and there was a history of domestic violence, court documents said.

During the April incident, the couple said Pollard had shot at them several times and one bullet apparently pierced a wall at a home in the 4700 block of South Anthony Boulevard. The bullet was lodged in the wall, court documents said.

Pollard was released on $40,000 bond and has a court hearing Thursday.
