SAN ANGELO – A San Angelo man has been arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after intentionally ramming another vehicle with his car during an altercation.
According to an incident report, on June 26, 2022, San Angelo Police responded to the 2100 block of Field Street regarding a domestic dispute. Once on scene, the officer made contact with the victims who advised they had been in a crash with the defendant, identified as Monte Jarmon. The officer also learned that the crash was intentional and was the result of Jarmon’s engagement with the victims.
Investigators conducted an interview with the victims who had been travelling together and came into contact with Jarmon, who was driving a black Acura passenger car. Jarmon flagged down the victims and requested they meet to speak.
The victims parked nearby and after Jarmon exited his vehicle, they say he allegedly began trying to pry open the passenger door of their vehicle. Due to his demeanor, the victims believed that he would harm or assault them, so they fled from the location.
Jarmon got into his vehicle and began pursuing the victims in a chase through the residential area. The victims lost sight of Jarmon’s vehicle as they continued to flee but at the 1900 block of Childress Street, Jarmon’s vehicle would crash into the victims, making the victim’s car spin 360 degrees. Despite the significant damage to their vehicle, the victim’s continued to flee from Jarmon.
The victims arrived back at the location on the 2100 block of Field Street and were followed by Jarmon who only fled the location after learning the police had been contacted.
Both victims corroborated the statement, and both also advised that they did not sustain any injuries from the crash. In addition to their statement, a witness confirmed both the victims and Jarmon arrived at a residence on Field Street and that Jarmon returned to the residence and fled the scene.
Investigators looked at the victim’s vehicle that had sustained significant damage to the back left quarter and left portion of the vehicle’s bumper. The force generated from the crash caused the framing of the vehicle to bend and both rear tires were observed to have been forced left and were slipping from the wheel they were attached to. The damage observed by the investigator is consistent with the story the victims told.
Later, the investigator responded to the 1500 block of Greenwood Drive after learned two officers were with the Jarmon’s vehicle. It had been abandoned in the private driveway of a residence. Investigators spoke with a woman who is related to Jarmon.
The woman stated that she agreed to take Jarmon with her as she did errands around town, but Jarmon would depart from her vehicle on foot to an unknown location. The woman also said that she had no knowledge of any incident that took place prior to the officers arriving outside her residence.
The investigator looked at Jarmon’s vehicle that had damage to the right portion of the front bumper and the right front panel. The damage is consistent with the collision with the victim’s vehicle.
Jarmon was arrested on July 14, 2022 and was booked into the Tom Green County Detention Facility. He is currently still an inmate and has a $1,000 bond.
