Lexington man charged with breaking into vehicle outside local bar
A Lexington man was charged with breaking into a car early Saturday morning after a woman spotted him inside her sport utility vehicle. The Salisbury Police charged Christopher Brandon Yokeley, 32, of the 100 block of Eastside Drive, with felony breaking and entering.
A woman approached an officer who was working as security at Benchwarmers around 12:45 a.m. She told the officer a man, later identified as Yokeley, was inside her 2007 Tahoe. The officer said he saw a man getting out of the SUV. The officer chased the man, who was headed toward the back of Uncle Buck’s.
A department report said Yokeley’s hand was bleeding and there was blood on the steering wheel. The driver’s side door was damaged. It appeared Yokeley broke the door handle with his hand. He smelled of alcohol, a report said.
Yokeley was given a $2,500 secured bond and has since been released from the county jail.
Yokeley has a pending court appearance in Davidson County regarding a driving while license revoked charge from this year. He also has a 2011 Davidson County charge for driving while impaired, for which he is expected in court next week.
