Suspect surrenders after ‘verbal altercation’ ends in hit-run


The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An altercation at a Vancouver bar led to a hit-and-run on Saturday night, police say.

Vancouver police say a man was with his friends at a bar on Northeast 112th Avenue when another man began filming them with his cell phone — ultimately leading to a “verbal altercation.” The entire group of people reportedly went outside and the man who was filming began to drive off. Before leaving the parking lot, however, he struck the other man with his car.

The suspect quickly fled the scene. The victim was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Monday afternoon, Charles R. Holliday-Smith turned himself into Vancouver Police. The 30-year-old was booked into the Clark County Jail for assault and felony hit and run.

As this is an ongoing investigation, no further details have been released. KOIN 6 News will continue to follow this story.
