Man faces charges in fatal deer-spotlighting crash

Jan. 2, 2009

GREENSBORO, N.C. Authorities say a Guilford County teen is facing charges in connection with a fatal crash that occurred while he was trying to avoid being reported for spotlighting deer.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports that 18-year-old Jonathan Blake Calhoun of McLeansville is charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter and four counts of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the accident.

Authorities say Calhoun was driving about 70 mph on a street while trying to avoid being reported for hunting deer with a spotlight. One passenger, 19-year-old Joshua Chrismon, was ejected from the truck and died. Four other friends were injured.

Officials say Calhoun turned himself in at the Guilford County magistrate's office. He was being held under $25,000 bail Friday.
