Lawrence J. Kidd

A 66-year-old Wallace man allegedly tried to run down his son-in-law Monday evening, shortly after the younger man got out of jail.

Lawrence Kidd, 42, was released Monday from the Lincoln County Jail after serving six weeks for domestic violence. He will be on probation for 14 months, according to a sentence handed down in district court.

He was moving back in with his wife, the older man's daughter.

Lincoln County Sheriff's deputies were called around 8:20 p.m. and asked to respond to Garrison Ave. in Wallace.

Kidd, 42, said his father-in-law, Wallace resident Ted Evans, tried to run over him with a pickup and hit him. Kidd said in his opinion it was intentional.

When deputies arrived, they spoke with Kidd, his wife and other witnesses. All of them said Evans was very angry.

Evans has no prior arrest record in Lincoln County, according to sheriff's records.

Evans drove through the back yard of their home and into the neighbor’s yard in his 1985 Dodge Camo pickup, and then he drove off down the street.

Kidd walked over to the neighbors to speak with them about the damage to their yard and was walking back home when Evans drove toward him at a high rate of speed in the front yard.

Kidd turned to get out of the way but was hit in the left arm by the vehicle. He was treated by Wallace EMS for his injuries and refused further treatment.

It appears Evans was angry over the fact that Kidd was again living with his daughter, investigators said.

Deputies found Evans at his home; he was arrested and jailed. He is charged with second degree assault.
