MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) – A Medford man has been accused of hitting a woman with his car in a grocery store parking lot after he say she took his parking spot.
The Mail Tribune reports that the 61-year-old man is being held at the Jackson County Jail on more than $1 million bail after officials say he struck a woman with his SUV Wednesday, causing bruises and a torn knee ligament.
Officials say the man clipped the 24-year-old woman in the parking lot of WinCo before fleeing the scene and heading to another store.
Police say the man told them he was upset that the woman took his parking spot and he was trying to cut her off as she walked to the store.
He pleaded not guilty on Thursday to assault and a hit-and-run charge.
