Louisiana Man Convicted for Hit & Run

     CHEMUNG CO. (WENY) --  A Louisiana man has been convicted of second degree assault after police say he hit a victim with his car in the Town of Chemung and then drove away.

     52-year-old William Ramsey could spend up to seven years behind bars.  Investigators say last July, he severely hurt a woman after hitting her with his car at County Route 60 and County Route 2.

     Ramsey is a convicted felon in Louisiana, and court records show he was charged in Bradford County for shooting at a woman who got out of his truck.

     Sentencing for the out-of-state gas worker is scheduled for March 7.
