These days, it can be quite hard to find a parking spot; however, that doesn’t mean you can make your own. A Triangle man who attempted to flee his parking pandemonium ended up parking himself in jail.

On May 9th at approximately 10:40 p.m. Deputy G.P. McCaulley responded to Hope Road for a report of an auto accident. The victim advised a truck traveled through her yard and ended up in her pavilion patio. It was further advised, after she confronted the driver, he fled the scene on foot.

Major C.S. Kimmitz, who happened to be in the area, began looking for the suspect. His master map knowledge led him to Club Drive, where he was able to locate the suspect. The suspect admitted to the auto accident, advising he confused the brakes with the gas pedal. He further explained he fled because he knew he would be in trouble.

Considering he ran from the scene, he was correct. He was in a bit of trouble. It was discovered not only did the suspect not have a driver’s license, but the vehicle was not his. The owner of the vehicle was contacted, who was perplexed why the suspect had his vehicle. He advised he never gave the suspect consent to use the vehicle.

Deputy McCaulley charged the suspect with hit and run, failure to maintain control of a vehicle, driving without a driver’s license, as well as, unauthorized use of a vehicle. He was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $5,000 secured bond, which happened to be the estimated amount of damages he caused.
