The victim then reportedly confronted Charlton, and after the two argued, he went to leave in his vehicle. Police said Charlton then turned his vehicle around, accelerated and drove directly at the victim, who was able to get out of the way.

Officials said he turned around again and drove right through the victim’s fence.
