Man arrested in N. Clark Street shooting in Milledgeville

A man has been arrested after allegedly firing shots into a woman's car around 8 a.m. Wednesday on North Clark Street in Milledgeville.

According to Major Richard Davis with the Milledgeville Police Department, Demarius Bolston was arrested and charged with aggravated assault after officers found a gun in his car. 

According to a news release, Rhonda Brown told police she was inside when she heard three gun shots. She looked out of a window, she told police, and saw a white Honda back out of her driveway.

When police arrived to the scene, they found two bullet holes in the rear bumper of a silver 1998 Honda Accord. Hours later, Bolston was arrested.

Davis said they don't believe this case is connected to the other drive-by shootings and appears to be a domestic dispute.
