Bill Rabon bolts after backing incident:
On 5/4/14 at 2158 hrs I responded to the PVA of 126 Princess St in reference to a hit and run accident. Upon my arrival I met with Colton Weaver 12/3/85, Mr Weaver`s yellow Honda had been hit (5M97BP NC). Mr Weaver advised that he had not witnessed the accident, his vehicle had sustained minor damage to the back right tail light. Jonathan Watkins 12/18/67 advised that he was across the street when he witnessed the accident occur. Mr Watkins advised that a white GMS Sierra four door backed into the yellow Honda and was attempting to leave. He approached same and told the driver that they just hit that car and should at least get out and take care of it. But the driver of the GMC left the area without stopping. Mr Watkins advised he noticed a `William Rabon for NC Senate` bumber stick on the back of the truck and the license plate number had `15` in same... I attempted to make contact with Mr Rabon by phone several times but no answer and voicemail was unavailable. Brunswick County Sheriff deputies went by his home address to make contact with him but no contact was made. No charges were filled at the time of this report.
Rabon has since been charged with "failure to look while backing" or some such nonsense, but nothing about leaving the scene or anything alcohol-related, which is a very likely factor in the accident. I redacted the name of the officer "filling" the report so as to avoid his high school English teacher from tracking him down and punishing him. See? I support law enforcement.
