FULTON COUNTY, GA- Investigators for the Fulton County Sheriffs Department arrested a college park man Wednesday in connection with an assault of an Uber driver in College Park. 31 year old Boynton Starrett was booked into the Fulton County jail.
Tuesday, authorities learned an Uber driver picked up a woman and drove her to a home on Kimberly Mill Road, Fulton police spokeswoman Maureen Smith said.
The driver said the passenger initially told him she needed to make two trips; one to Walmart and another to her grandmother’s house. However, he said, they ended up at a house, that she said was her boyfriend’s house, located in the 6000 block of Kimberly Mill Road.
Once the passenger went inside, she found her boyfriend with another woman, according to the driver, who then heard arguing and said the passenger ran out the house with a man running after her.
The passenger, he said, ordered him to drive and as he took off, the man allegedly fired several shots at the car. No one was shot, but the car’s back window was shattered.
Fulton County Police received the call around 10:45 p.m., and arrived on scene, but the boyfriend and the woman inside refused to come out of the home. A SWAT team was called and a brief standoff ensued.
Starrett was charged him with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
