Casper Hit and Run

Submitted on June 7th, 2016

One Casper man is still recovering tonight, after being knocked unconscious on Friday.  According to witnesses, he was helping a friend trim a tree, when a car drove into a man on a 20 foot ladder.  On Monday 18 year-old Deontae Paul was arrested, and now faces 3 counts of aggravated assault.  Witnesses believe he allegedly drove his car on purpose towards 3 people, after they told him to slow down while driving through a neighborhood.  His bond has been set at $15,000.  If convicted, each charge of aggravated assault carries a 10 year prison sentence.
