A man and woman were arrested on warrants of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle Wednesday morning.

Rodney Lee Payne, 49, and Robin McCallum Jarriel, 41, are accused of hitting two men with a pickup driven by Payne, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

The incident happened in Lizella on March 8. Three people arrived at a mobile home on Central Street near midnight and found Payne and Jarriel trespassing on the property. The man who lives at the trailer closed the driveway gate to keep the two there until law enforcement arrived, the release stated.

That’s when Payne allegedly drove his truck into the gate and pinned the man beneath it. Payne backed up the truck and then moved forward again, hitting a second man, the release stated.

Payne and Jerriel were taken to the Bibb County jail Wednesday.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 478-751-7500 and leave a message for the on-call investigator, or call Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at 877-682-7463.
