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.

Doesn't seem the guy was hurt too bad since he was chatting on his phone while being treated.
