A Lexington man is accused of running his car into a home where three children were visiting.
Jeffrey O’Neal Yasmine, 39, is charged with attempted murder, domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, malicious injury to personal property >$2,000, failure to stop for blue lights and three counts of unlawful conduct toward a child, according to arrest warrants.
“Deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of Riglaw Circle after Yasmine ran his car through the front of a home Feb. 27,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Yasmine left the home before deputies arrived.”
Koon said there were three adults and three children in the home. The children were unharmed and one adult had minor injuries.
“Deputies attempted to make contact with Yasmine March 5 while patrolling S. Lake Drive but Yasmine drove away,” according to Koon. “After a short pursuit, Yasmine’s car ran out of gas and he was arrested.”
Yasmine is currently being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
