A Macon County man has been charged with two counts of assault. Forty-one-year-old Terry J. Stanfield, of Macon, was arrested Friday, May 27, 2022, by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.
According to court documents, on or about Friday, May 27, while operating a black 2013 Dodge Caravan, westbound, on Shelby 302, Stanfield allegedly knowingly and intentionally swerved into the pathway of an eastbound 1995 Chrysler Sebring being operated by Anthony Allen, causing the Chrysler to slide, and run off the roadway.
During an alleged confrontation with Allen on Shelby 302, Stanfield allegedly approached and threw rocks at Allen’s vehicle. Stanfield allegedly assaulted Allen, by punching him in the face and mouth area. As a result of the alleged assault, Allen sustained multiple injuries.
According to the probable cause statement, Stanfield stated he recognized Allen’s car as he was traveling westbound on Shelby 302 and jarred the wheel causing Allen to slam on his brakes and slide sideways in the roadway.
Stanfield stated as he got out of his vehicle, Allen allegedly shot a gun two to four times. Stanfield said as he went back to his vehicle, Allen took off to turn around that is when Allen allegedly got his car stuck in the ditch.
Stanfield stated he turned around with his lights toward Allen and Allen allegedly shot the ground at least five to six times and then shot the radiator of the van he was in causing it to die.
In Allen’s written statement, he stated he was allegedly driving through town minding his own business when people allegedly began to holler at him. Allen stated he tried to avoid them by turning around in a driveway, and as he turned around the people were there and allegedly attempted to run him off the road.
