Deputies make arrest, investigate accident
Henry County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a subject following a disturbance and investigated a two-vehicle accident over the New Year’s holiday.
According to a press release, deputies responded to a disturbance at 12:18 a.m., on Sunday, Jan. 1, in Winfield. An investigation led to the arrest of Christa Wagner, Winfield, on a charge with assault causing bodily injury.
A few hours earlier, deputies received a call on Dec. 31, of a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Highway 78.
The sheriff’s report indicated that Joshua Brown, Wayland, rear-ended a car driven by Rebecca Boshart, rural Wayland, as Boshart stopped at the stop sign.
Brown was cited for failure to maintain control and failure to provide security against liability.
No injuries were reported and damages were estimated at $3,000.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
