WASHINGTON CITY – A Murray man is in the Washington County Jail after allegedly trying to run over a group of teens in a Walmart parking lot.

Police say 42-year-old Nickolas Michael May was driving a motor home in the parking lot of the Walmart at 625 West Telegraph in Washington City at around 11 p.m. Wednesday when he allegedly repeatedly tried to hit a group of four juveniles standing near one of their vehicles in the parking lot.

He was arrested by Washington City Police officers and booked into the Washington County Jail on one count of aggravated assault with a weapon causing substantial bodily injury, three counts of aggravated assault with a weapon, one count of leaving the scene of an injury accident and one count of reckless driving.
