Man indicted for intentionally hitting pedestrian

A Parker County grand jury has indicted a man accused of intentionally hitting another man with a car, injuring the pedestrian.

Eighteen-year-old Jesus Salcido was indicted on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury.

The Weatherford Democrat says Salcido drove past a man and another car in the roadway on East Akard Street, made a U-turn, sped up and struck the man in the roadway with his vehicle before leaving the area.

Salcido says he knew the victim and had a confrontation with him earlier.

The grand jury also indicted a Graford man who reportedly led multiple Parker County law enforcement agencies in a high speed pursuit from Willow Park to Millsap in October after, police say, he assaulted and fled an officer during a traffic stop.

29-year-old Christopher Jess Lemley was indicted on charges of assault of a public servant and evading arrest or detention with a vehicle.

Lemley was reported to be on parole and was wanted at the time of the incident after bonding out of the Palo Pinto County Jail on Sept. 28 on a weapons-related charge.
