Abrey Mayweather, 24, of Racine, is charged with hit-and-run, causing great bodily harm for a September incident where someone was struck on Sheridan Road, and left behind with serious injuries.
Mount Pleasant Police were sent to Highway 32, just north of the Kenosha County line about 4:43 a.m. Sept. 20, for a report that a man had been shot. According to the criminal complaint, there were three men there, one of whom appeared to be in shock, one with a graze wound to his calf, and a third screaming he had been shot in the face.
Police found a large amount of glass on the road, and the backing to a vehicle’s driver’s side mirror on the ground.
All three people were taken to the hospital for treatment, according to court records.
Medical staff said none of the people had been shot, but that the injuries were more consistent with a motor vehicle crash.
A suspicious vehicle was reported in Somers a short time later, showing damage consistent with a collision with a pedestrian – including an impression in he windshield similar to the size of a person’s head.
The vehicle was registered to someone who was nearly 100 years old, and Mayweather was known to drive the vehicle often. He told police he hit something, but didn’t see what it was, and didn’t see anything in his mirrors after the crash. He further told police he hadn’t known anybody had beenhit until he saw the news.
The person with the most serious injuries had a broken leg, ankle and knee, torn ligament and head and facial injuries.
Mayweather made his initial appearance Wednesday, and is out of custody on a $2,000 signature bond.
