SALISBURY — A Salisbury man released earlier this year from prison was charged this week after he rammed his car into a vehicle his girlfriend was driving.

Salisbury Police charged Jeramy Jermaine McNair, 40, of the 100 block of Emerson Lane, Apt. 304, with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon, misdemeanor injury to personal property and misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer.

He was issued a $2,500 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center. The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon along South Main Street.

A witness saw the pair arguing and the man use his car to ram into the back of the woman’s car. Police later learned the man, Jeramy McNair, was actually in his girlfriend’s car and she was in a rental.

She tried to drive away and he rammed the car again, Police Capt. Melonie Thompson said.

The victim drove to a friend’s house and McNair was seen walking from the scene saying he had to get to work. He was found at his job on Airport Road. The car he was driving had a flat tire and was not able to be driven.

The woman told police the two had argued all night. He told police she slammed on her brakes so that he would hit her.

In May 1999, McNair was convicted of second-degree murder in Cumberland County and served about 17 years in prison.
