Prison inmate arrested in 2006 hit and run

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

A prison inmate serving time for stealing a car in Washoe County was brought to the Carson City Jail on Thursday to be arrested on a 2006 warrant for a hit and run here.

Jeffrey Darwin Williams, 38, was booked into the Carson City Jail at 8 a.m. on a warrant for suspicion of felony battery with a deadly weapon and hit and run with injury. He was then returned to the Nevada State Prison.

According to the police report, on Nov. 18, 2006, Williams allegedly ran head-on into a vehicle driven by Williams’ ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend. The wreck sent the new boyfriend’s vehicle into a fence and garage at the corner of Bonanza and Manzanita drives.

The man and a child in the vehicle were injured.

Williams then allegedly fled the scene and stole a Basalite truck from Boeing Way.

A month after the incident, Williams was sentenced out of Washoe County to 28 to 72 months in prison for felony failing to stop on a signal from an officer, and 48 to 120 months in prison on a charge of possession of a stolen vehicle, charges apparently unrelated to the hit and run.

A warrant on the Carson City charges was issued for Williams on Dec. 6, 2006.
