Suspect Accused Of Running Over Two Victims

On Sunday, Wayne County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian call on Zeno Lane. Initially, the Highway Patrol was dispatched but the investigation revealed that the Sheriff’s Office needed to investigate. A witness stated that 39-year-old Wade Tucker was in an argument with two persons over money.  Tucker left the scene for a few minutes but then returned and reportedly used the vehicle he was driving to run over and into the two victims. Both victims were transported to Wayne UNC Health Care to receive treatment for their injuries.   Tucker was located by deputies near the 1700 block of Old Smithfield Road operating the vehicle used in the assault. He was detained for questioning. The vehicle that was used in the assault was processed and towed. Tucker was placed under arrest and charged with two counts of Assault with a Deadly Weapon Inflicting Serious Injury.  He was held at the Wayne County Jail under a $50,000 secured bond.
