A Killeen man accused of running a woman down with his car after an argument, leaving the victim seriously injured, was indicted Wednesday for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Seth Gilbert Williams, 31, was arrested on May 31 in connection with the incident, which was reported just after 11 p.m. on May 28 in the area of Evetts Road and Rocky Lane in Killeen.

His bond was set at $100,000.

His name did not appear on the Bell County Jail’s online roster Wednesday.

The victim and her 9-year-old son were riding with Williams on May 28 when the woman and Williams began to argue, an arrest affidavit says.

Williams stopped and told the woman to get out of the car.

She and the boy complied and were walking on a sidewalk when Williams, who had circled the block, came up behind them and struck the woman with his car, knocking her to the ground, the affidavit says.

“The victim said that after the suspect knocked her to the ground with the car, he backed up and ‘zoomed’ forward over her foot, causing the injuries,” the affidavit said.

The woman suffered a compound fracture, required surgery and will be required to wear a cast for weeks, the affidavit says.

Officers later contacted Williams at his home.

He confirmed he argued with the woman and that she got out of the car, and told officers he “somehow accidentally bumped the victim with the car.”

“The suspect stated he was intoxicated and did not remember all of the details,” the affidavit said.
