The warrant stated Nathaniel Welch of Dallas allegedly assaulted William Greene and Lindsey Hall with a 2007 GMC pickup truck, when he rammed into their truck four times and “also attempted to side swipe and run the victim’s truck off the road.”
Welch was arrested by the Austell Police Department on six charges, two listed as felonies, aggravated assault, terrorist threats and acts, simple assault, following too closely, having an open container of alcohol and driving while under the influence.
The couple’s truck struck another vehicle, causing a rear-end collision, on the corner of Thornton Road and Westfork Boulevard, the warrant stated.
The warrant stated that Welch got out of his truck, jumped on the victim’s hood and “punched the hood with both fists.”
Then, Welch confronted the couple and stated in front of witnesses, “I will kill you,” according to the warrant.
The warrant also stated Welch had a 16-ounce bottle of liquor in the truck and “the alcoholic beverage was spilled on the driver’s floorboard.”
Welch was released the next day on a $15,000 bond.
