Abilene police have arrested and charged a 21-year-old man with aggravated assault for running over another man in a bar parking lot early Wednesday morning.

According to police, Daniel L. Becker Jr. ran over a 27-year-old man who was standing in front of his truck hoping to keep Becker from leaving the scene after a woman accused Becker of stealing from her.

According to witnesses, Becker drove off with the man clinging to his vehicle. Police found the victim nearby being treated by paramedics.

The man was later taken by helicopter to a Lubbock hospital with serious injuries.

Police later contacted Becker at his residence. His vehicle was seized and he was arrested Wednesday afternoon.
