Police: Abilene man arrested for intentionally crashing into roommate's vehicle

James Hollers was arrested during October 2017 after allegedly ramming his vehicle into his roommate's vehicle.

ABILENE, Texas - An Abilene man is facing a second-degree felony charge after allegedly ramming his vehicle into his roommate's on Sunday morning.

According to an arrest report released Monday, 31-year-old James Hollers was driving east on N. 3rd Street when he intentionally collided into his roommate's vehicle. The roommate said he was hurt in the crash and wanted to press charges for aggravated assault, but Hollers wasn't at home when police showed up.

Hollers later called police to report that his car was stolen, according to the report. That's when police figured out who he was and learned he also had a warrant for his arrest.

Police arrested Hollers on a warrant for assault/family violence and then questioned him about the vehicular assault, the report says. Hollers didn't provide any information, but police say they found evidence on him that implicated him in the crash.

Hollers was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was booked into jail Monday on bonds totaling a little more than $26,000.
