GREENVILLE – One man was airlifted, one arrested after a domestic dispute turned into a serious crash on the 400 block of East Fourth Street in Greenville Tuesday evening.

According to the Greenville Police Department, a male driver of an older model maroon sedan was reportedly speeding eastbound on Fourth Street. He ran a stop sign then hit a male that was crossing the road on foot and smashed into a parked car on the south side the street.

The male pedestrian was transported to a landing zone on Martin Street where he was taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital.

Upon investigating the incident, officers were able to determine that James Stewart, while operating a motor vehicle, deliberately and with the intention of causing serious bodily harm stuck the victim, Benjamin Jones. Jones was transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital and Stewart was taken to Wayne HealthCare for evaluation and then to the Darke County jail where he is being held on a $50,000 bond for a charge of Felonious Assault, a felony of the second degree.

The incident remains under investigation at this time. Persons with additional information regarding this incident are asked to contact the Greenville Police Department, 548-4150 option 4 or Darke County Crime Stoppers, 547-1661. All calls may remain anonymous.
