Sheriff: Man runs through checkpoint, hits deputy’s car
WHITEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina’s sheriff’s office has accused a South Carolina man of driving through a checkpoint and hitting a deputy’s vehicle.
WECT in Wilmington reports the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office says 50-year-old Donald Alan Bonini of Conway, South Carolina, nearly hit a deputy at the checkpoint on U.S. Highway 701 on Thursday.
Spokeswoman Michele Tatum says as the deputy chased Bonini in his car, roof tacks were thrown onto the road from the suspect’s car. She says when the deputy tried to stop the suspect’s car, the driver hit the deputy’s car.
Tatum said Bonini lost control of his car and stopped in a yard. He was captured after a foot chase.
The sheriff’s office filed multiple charges against Bonini, including assault with a deadly weapon on a government official.
