A 19-year-old Lincolnton man has been charged with stalking and assault with a deadly weapon.
Scott Anthony Hoxmeier, of 3629 Waterview Trail, was charged on Jan. 18 following a call to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office about a harassment incident, according to a Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
Deputies said the caller told officers that she and several friends were riding in a golf cart on Waterview Trail when a minivan pulled up and nearly struck the golf cart and then followed the golf cart.
Deputies said the driver of the golf cart flagged down help from a passing motorist and that the vehicle backed off, turned around and left.
Hoxmeier, the alleged driver of the minivan, was charged with reckless driving, stalking and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. He was jailed under a $16,000 secured bond.
