SALT LAKE CITY — Two men who allegedly assaulted a Taylorsville High School teacher — at one point driving as he was clinging to the hood of their car — have been charged.
The wild incident happened Dec. 13, according to Unified police. Cristian Hernandez and Marquez Anthony Parker, both 19, were at Taylorsville High School, 5225 S. Redwood Road, to pick up a student. While there, the two men got into a verbal altercation with Konrad Wilson. Wilson is listed on the high school's webpage as the JROTC instructor.
Wilson told police he confronted Hernandez about drinking in the parking lot and stood in front of his Lincoln Towncar to get a license plate number, according to charging documents.
"Hernandez accelerated toward Wilson and Wilson jumped onto the hood of the Towncar to avoid being run over," the charges state.
Hernandez continued driving — with Wilson still hanging on the hood of the car — to a Chevron gas station near 5600 S. Redwood Road, according to charging documents. Wilson tried to get off of the car at that point, but Hernandez and Parker "exited the Towncar and assaulted Wilson," and then got back in the car "and once again accelerated toward Wilson," the charges state.Comment on this story
Wilson tried to get out of the way but was forced to once again hang on the hood of the car as the suspects drove to a nearby Wal-Mart, 5469 S. Redwood Road, where "Wilson let go and fell," according to charging documents.
Both Hernandez and Parker were charged Thursday in 3rd District Court with three counts of aggravated assault, a third-degree felony, and assault against a school employee, a class A misdemeanor.
A $50,000 warrant was issued Thursday for each man. Unified police said Thursday that both men may have fled to California.
