Pennsylvania drivers who were on Route 28 on Sunday evening might have been surprised to see a man hanging onto the hood of a car as it drove past.
Police have charged 46-year-old Dwayne Harvard after they say he hit 36-year-old Steven Sutton with his SUV, according to WTAE.
However, Harvard maintains that he did not hit Sutton and that he was the one being threatened, supposedly over Harvard being with Sutton’s girlfriend.
“He took a cinder block, and he was trying to hit the truck,” Harvard told WTAE. “I said, ‘calm down. You put the block down.'”
Harvard said that he and a female friend, who was also in the car, feared for their lives, so they kept driving. They did not know if Sutton was armed.
“I didn’t want to stop because if he had a gun, he could shoot either through the window and kill me and also kill her.”
Harvard called 911 to report the situation.
“I called 911 myself, and I let him know who I was,” Harvard said. “I said, ‘Listen, my name is Dwayne Harvard,’ I said, ‘I got this guy on my hood.'”
Dispatchers directed Harvard to an exit, where both men were detained by police. Sutton was not charged, while Harvard was charged with simple assault, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and DUI.
