NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A driver was arrested after police said he struck a woman’s car multiple times.
The victim called police to a home on Linbar Drive on Sunday night, saying a man had been following her and then hit her car with his multiple times, according to a Davidson County affidavit.
The victim told police that 23-year-old Humberto Reyes-Valadez had been driving in front of her when he started driving in reverse beside her vehicle. He then allegedly got behind her vehicle, and started following very closely.
When she decided to make a U-turn to get away from him, she said he rammed his vehicle into hers and then pushed the gas to push her vehicle.
In total, Reyes-Valadez struck her car eight times, according to a police affidavit.
She eventually told police she drove on the curb to get away from him, and then watched as he parked at a nearby home.
Fortunately, she was not hurt.
When officers arrived, they said Reyes-Valadez smelled like alcohol, had bloodshot eyes, and was unsteady on his feet. While talking with officers, they said he tried to run away but officers caught up with him and took him into custody.
He was charged with aggravated assault, evading arrest, and public intoxication. His bond was set at $16,000.
Police did not say whether he and the victim knew each other, or if it was a random incident.
