Police: York City teen rammed ex's car
A York City man allegedly rammed his ex-girlfriend's car Thursday morning, according to charging documents.
York Area Regional Police say Yahke Kirene Jones Jr., 18, of the 736 S. Queen St., struck the woman's car in the area of 1927 Queenswood Drive, York Hills Apartments.
Jones is charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, stalking and DUI, among other charges, according to charging documents.
Allegations: York Area Regional Police were sent to the York Hills Apartments area in York Township about 11:50 a.m. for a report of a vehicle crash. The driver of the striking vehicle, identified as Jones, was not there at the time, the release states.
Officers arrived on the scene and found Jones attempting to flee, according to police. People nearby advised Jones to stay at the scene of the crash, but he still left, documents state.
Police say Jones was having an argument with his ex-girlfriend on the phone. She told officials that Jones had been following her, always wanting to know where she was, police said.
She was arguing on the phone while driving when she saw a vehicle coming toward her in her lane that then struck her car, according to police. Jones intentionally hit her car head-on, police said.
While speaking with officials, police say Jones admitted to smoking marijuana. A burnt marijuana smell was coming from the inside of Jones' vehicle, documents state.
"When Jones was asked if he smoked marijuana, Jones said 'Not today, but I do smoke,'" the release states.
Jones was asked to submit a blood test, but police say he refused. He was taken to central booking to be arraigned, and he was remanded to York County Prison in lieu of $75,000 bail, according to the York County Sheriff's Office.
