A Seward man is accused of intentionally crashing his van into his family members’ vehicles during a domestic dispute Sunday morning.
Jordan N. Getz, 34, allegedly drove his van into a Harley Davidson motorcycle and an SUV parked at a home in Soldotna. A witness reported that Getz had backed up the van, revved his engine and accelerated on the gravel driveway in reverse from about 15 feet away — hitting the two motorcycle, according to an Alaska State Trooper affidavit filed with the court. Getz then allegedly drove over the bike and hit the SUV, according to the affidavit.
Troopers on the scene reported that the motorcycle had a dented gas tank, broken taillights and scratch marks. The SUV had a shattered rear window, according to troopers. The damage to each vehicle was estimated to be about $2,000, troopers reported.
Troopers found Getz’s van abandoned about a quarter mile from the alleged incident. Repeated attempts to contact Getz were unsuccessful, according to the affidavit.
Troopers have requested that the court issue a warrant. Getz was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, a class C felony; and leaving the scene of an accident, a special misdemeanor.
