David Legrande Hedin, 44, was charged with third-degree assault and battery and malicious damage to personal property with a value of $2,000 or less, according to records at J. Reuben Long Detention. Hedin is being held pending a bond hearing.
A 41-year-old Conway man told officers that about 9:20 p.m. Monday he was riding his bicycle to a nearby store along Wise Road when Hedin, who has been spending time with the victim’s former girlfriend, drove down the road in his truck, according to the report.
The victim said Hedin swerved toward him and he jumped off the bicycle to avoid getting hit by the truck.
The victim said the truck hit the bicycle. The victim said Hedin drove back toward him and swerved toward him again, but he jumped out of the way, according to the report.
Officers noted a trail of water on the road that appeared to be from the back of a truck. The trail of water went in a straight line and then curved toward the opposite side of the road.
Officers also noticed a dent on the front of the bicycle and the brakes were broken off and a pedal also had grass hanging from it, according to the report. Officers also found recent damage to the front of the truck, which was parked in the driveway of Hedin’s home, but no one answered the door.
