A Pacolet, South Carolina man was arrested after another man was allegedly run over by a car in the backyard of a home on Memorial Drive. The 50-year-old defendant was charged with driving under the influence with great bodily injury, and second-degree assault and battery, according to the arrest report. When the officers were called, they found that the assailant had allegedly backed over the 54-year-old victim with his truck; however, the defendant stated that the other man’s “leg was broken before the accident.”
