Jerry Lee Washington Jr., from Alabama, was wanted for attempted murder and burglary. Last week, Washington turned himself into police by accident by reporting damage to his vehicle to officers. Damage to his vehicle came from an incident where he tried to steal from Joey Buchanan’s home. Washington ran the man over as he left the scene of the crime. Officers arrested Washington when he arrived to report the damage to his car.

“Some people aren’t as bright as they think they are,” Buchanan said. Buchanan suffered fractures along the right side of his body in the incident. “You don’t go to somebody’s house, steal something from them, run over somebody that is there, and then go file a report against them. How’s that going to work?”

Washington’s vehicle was parked in the front yard of the Buchanan household and was discovered there by Buchanan’s dad. Buchanan was told by his dad to try to find the VIN number of the car while he looked for Washington, who was hiding in a shrub.

The incident turned violent when Washington made a break for his vehicle. When he got in he tried to run over Buchanan and his grandfather, who happened to be armed. The grandfather fired two shots at the car that did not connect.

“Well when [Washington] jumped out, the man jumped in his car, and threw it in drive and took off and pinned me between his car and my truck,” Buchanan said.
