ANTHONY, Kansas (AP) – A south-central Kansas man is jailed after he allegedly chased people repossessing his car, then shot at the vehicle, forced it off the road and hit the man who was seizing the car.

Police say an employee of Xpress Recovery of Wichita repossessed the car from a home near Anthony Monday. The car’s owner allegedly followed the vehicle, rammed it several times and forced it off the road. The man and a juvenile then allegedly shot at the car’s windshield, pulled the driver out and hit him with a gun.

The driver suffered minor injuries.

The car’s owner was booked into the Harper County jail on suspicion of aggravated battery, aggravated assault and criminal discharge of a firearm. The juvenile was taken to a juvenile facility in Reno County.
