After interviewing several witnesses present during the assault on the driver that fatally struck a pedestrian on Saturday, police have charged a man for the beating, Detective Sergeant Greg Staffordsmith says.
“Officer Eric Cicerello interviewed witnesses present at the time of the assault, and as a result, he ultimately charged, 33 year old Anthony Campbell of Lakewood with Aggravated Assault,” Staffordsith says. “He was processed and released.”
The driver, a 26 year old Lakewood resident, was assaulted after several of the victims’ family members arrived on scene and became enraged after learning of her death, Stattfordsmith says.
The injured driver has since been released from the hospital, as reported yesterday on TLS.
