Coweta wrecker man charged with shooting mechanic in foot

A Coweta County man has been charged with aggravated assault after shooting a man in the ankle in a dispute over a car repair.

Fayette County Sheriff Barry Babb said 47-year-old David Sharp was charged with aggravated assault in the Jan. 12 incident.

The incident occurred after Sharp, a tow truck driver, met with a car mechanic at a business located on Ga. Highway 85 North. The mechanic was the individual who would be working on the vehicle, Babb added.

A dispute arose during the conversation between the two men, Babb said, adding that the verbal dispute turned into a physical altercation.

Sharp at one point produced a handgun and shot the mechanic in the ankle, said Babb.

A witness to the incident called 911, said Babb. Deputies arriving at the location arrested Sharp at the scene.
