AUBURN -- An unwanted guest at an early-morning party led to a driveway scuffle where one man left with road rash after hanging from a vehicle, and a woman suffered a severe broken leg.
The incident happened at 5747 Wheeler Road in Auburn on March 22, and an arrest warrant was filed on March 24 for Evan Whitfield McGehee, 21, for committing a hit and run that caused a serious injury. The woman injured in the incident suffered a broken bone that stuck out of her upper left leg, according to the warrant. McGehee also didn't call 911 after the incident, a police report said.
McGehee, a Buford resident, was booked and released from the Gwinnett jail on March 24.
A Gwinnett County police officer who was dispatched to the party just after 2 a.m. said several people at the house didn't want McGehee at the party, and some got in an argument with him, a police report said. In an interview with police, McGehee said one of the victims spit on his car and attacked him in the car.
McGehee then put his car in reverse to get away, but then struck one victim while another temporarily hung on to the car.
At Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville where the victims went for treatment, the officer reported that, "it seemed like no one wanted to cooperate and give me a straight story."
"Due to the strange nature of this call and the injuries that happened, an incident report was complete despite the victim not cooperating," the officer wrote in the report.
