An Alto man is charged with aggravated assault related to a New Year’s Eve incident involving shooting at a Lula man’s car on Ga. Highway 365.

Victor Lamar Scott, 51, is accused of shooting at the 2002 Toyota Tundra operated by Stephen Stanfill, 49, around 2 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, according to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office report.

Scott is accused of discharging “a firearm from inside his vehicle at (Stanfill’s) vehicle, striking it in the left front fender,” according to the arrest warrant.

The bullet, according to the warrant, went into the driver’s side floor area, with Stanfill being hit with a piece of the vehicle’s interior.

The incident is reported to have taken place on Ga. 365 near Cagle Road, according to the report. The two men reportedly did not know each other, and the weapon used was a 9 mm handgun.

The two witnesses to the alleged incident were a lieutenant and deputy from the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office listed in the report.

Scott was reportedly driving a 2004 Ford Explorer at the time of the incident.

Scott was booked into the Hall County Jail Wednesday, according to the jail reports.

Attempts to reach the Hall County Sheriff’s Office for further information were unsuccessful.
