'You Wrecked My Car....'

From today's N&O. Really? $2,000 bail for assault with a deadly weapon?

A Raleigh man was arrested Sunday after police said he hit a bicyclist with his car, yelled at the cyclist for wrecking his car, then drove off.

Lesley Covington, 35, of 852 Athens Drive, is facing one count of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of felony hit and run causing serious injury, according to an arrest warrant filed in the Wake County Magistrate's Office.

Raleigh police said in the warrant that Covington struck Pedro Lopez-Espinoza Sunday while Lopez-Espinoza was riding his bike.

Covington then exited his vehicle, police said, told the cyclist, "You wrecked my car." then drove away.

Covington was released from the Wake County jail this morning after posting $2,000 bail.
