Trucker Faces Weapon and Hit and Run Charges Following Altercation at Truck Wash
Stafford County, VA – A trucker was arrested on numerous charges on Sunday following an intense dispute at a truck wash in Virginia.
According to the Office of Stafford County Sheriff (OSCS), at approximately 2:23 p.m. deputies responded to a call from the Blue Beacon Truck Wash located at 61 South Gateway Drive in Fredericksburg, off of Interstate 95 at exit 133.
Upon arriving, Stafford County Deputy B.W. Gildea learned that a suspect in a tractor-trailer had brandished a handgun at another patron after a dispute erupted inside the business.
Deputy Gildea’s investigation determined that a trucker, later identified as Primus Davis, 49, of Manassas, VA, became angry over how long it was taking for the victim to move his vehicle through the line.
After the altercation occurred inside the truck wash, a witness allegedly pulled his vehicle in front of Davis’s big rig to prevent him from leaving until law enforcement arrived.
Davis then allegedly returned to his tractor-trailer and drove forward pushing the vehicle out of the way before fleeing the scene.
Deputy Gildea pursued Davis and located him while inside his big rig parked on the shoulder of Warrenton Road near I-95, OSCS reported.
Davis was subsequently arrested and charged with felony hit and run and brandishing.
He is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $1,000 secure bond.
