Alvin T. Crouch, 27, was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery, according to Sheriff Barry Babb.

Babb said deputies were initially called to a Callaway Road residence southeast of Fayetteville about a gunshot victim. Deputies arrived to find a woman in a vehicle who had been shot in the leg.

Babb said the incident unfolded when the female driver and her mother dropped her child off at Crouch’s home on South Jeff Davis Drive. Crouch is the father of the child.

Crouch and the child’s mother became involved in a verbal altercation at his residence, Babb said, noting that after the mother and grandmother left the residence Crouch entered his vehicle and began to follow.

At one point Crouch rammed the woman’s vehicle and, while ramming the vehicle, fired a shot into the driver’s side back door. The bullet struck the grandmother in the leg, Babb said.

The child’s mother pulled into a driveway and began blowing the horn. Residents came outside, assessed the situation and called 911, Babb said.

Babb said the gunshot victim was transported to Grady Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Crouch was subsequently arrested without incident at his South Jeff Davis Drive home.
