DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - A Dothan man has been arrested after allegedly hitting a pedestrian.
Andrew Tosches, 23, was arrested and charged with First Degree Assault.
Dothan police responded to a call stating a pedestrian had been struck in the 100 block of Pinehurst Drive. After gathering witness statements, police changed the call from accidental pedestrian strike to assault.
Investigators say Tosches was driving a Chevrolet Cavalier when he came up behind a pickup truck pulled to the side of the roadway. The driver of the truck was talking with another person. Tosches allegedly refused to go around the truck, continuously blowing his horn. The victim, a pedestrian, approached the suspect vehicle. Tosches then sped away, throwing the victim, who was in contact with the vehicle, to the ground causing a moderate head injury.
