A Brunswick man was arrested last week for allegedly striking another man with a car at Thomas Point Beach Campground.

Jay K. Jeffrey, 31, of Brunswick has been charged with elevated aggravated assault, a Class A felony, and a Class C crime of driving to endanger.

He was also charged with the Class D crimes of domestic violence assault and reckless conduct.

Shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday, Brunswick police responded to a complaint of a domestic disturbance at the campground. Brunswick Police Cmdr. Mark Waltz said Jeffrey had allegedly been involved in an argument with a 23-year-old woman and hit her. The woman was not seriously hurt.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with a man who said he attempted to slow or stop Jeffrey’s car from leaving the area, but was instead struck by the vehicle, which left the campground. The man told police that his arm was broken.

Another witness identified the driver and provided a description of the car, Waltz said.

Officers later found a car at Jeffrey’s home with damage consistent with having struck someone, Waltz said. They did not find Jeffrey there, however, and a Freeport K9 team was unable to locate him.

Waltz said police eventually located Jeffrey and arrested him at his Adams Road home at 9:45 a.m. Friday.
