A 67-year-old Wildwood man has been jailed after allegedly attempting to use a pickup to run over a convicted sex offender.
William Harold Bailey went to the sex offender’s residence on County Road 121 shortly before noon Thursday and “aggressively” confronted the sex offender, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. He allegedly took a swing at the sex offender, who was not identified in the report.
Bailey got into his tan pickup truck and attempted to strike the sex offender, with whom Bailey has had “numerous civil issues with,” the report noted. Bailey fled the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement.
