A Springfield man allegedly rammed his car into another car twice while both cars were being driven.
Brandon Campbell, 32, is charged in Clark County Municipal Court with felonious assault. He pleaded not guilty and his bond was set at $15,000.
Springfield police began their investigation on July 28 when they were called to the 1900 block of Lagonda Avenue after a woman said her vehicle was intentionally struck, according to an affidavit filed with the charges.
“(The woman) advised that she and (a man) were driving northbound on Lagonda Avenue in the area of James Street,” the affidavit says. “(The woman) advised that a male named Brandon Campbell had been following them in a gold Chevrolet SUV, believed to be a Tahoe.”
They said when they approached a railroad crossing at the intersection of Lagonda Avenue and James Street, they slowed down.
“Mr. Campbell did not slow down and struck (the woman’s) vehicle in the rear bumper,” the affidavit says. ” (The woman) believing the strike to be intentional due to all their recent problems with Mr. Campbell, turned west onto Henry Street and headed toward Jimmy T’s Bar. When (the woman) turned left, Mr. Campbel struck her vehicle again, this time damaging the two driver side doors.”
It was at this time, Campbell turned around and left the area, the affidavit says.
The affidavit says the issue between the victim and Campbell stem from a previous relationship. A next court date in the case was not set.
