LEWES, Del. – A Lewes man was arrested Sunday afternoon after he reportedly tried to hit his girlfriend with his vehicle.

Troopers were called to the area of John J. Williams Highway, east of Angola Road, for a reported physical domestic at around 3:45 p.m. On arrival, a 20-year-old female reported that she and her boyfriend, 30-year-old Terrance Weaver, had gotten into a physical altercation. She told police that the day before, Weaver had hit her with his steel toed boots and chased her with a scrap piece of solid iron, before hitting and damaging her vehicle with the piece of iron. Weaver then reportedly got into his truck and drove towards the victim, trying to hit her. The victim was able to jump out of the way and avoid being hit.

Weaver left the residence afterwards and did not return until the next day, when he asked to use the victim’s vehicle. When she refused, the two got into a physical altercation, during which Weaver reportedly chased her and threatened to kill her.

Weaver was taken into custody on scene of the incident and was charged with two counts of possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, aggravated menacing, first degree reckless endangerment, terroristic threatening, third degree assault, criminal mischief, and offensive touching. He was held at SCI on $135,100 cash only bond.
