Man admits he tried to run vehicle off the road

A man admitted to felony assault with a deadly weapon after a June 22 incident where he attempted to ram a vehicle containing a former girlfriend.

Jacob Matthew Olivio Wilson, 21, is facing up to six years in prison, though prosecutors will recommend a suspended 2-5-year prison sentence.

According to court documents, Olivio Wilson was drinking with the woman and another man in the Gardnerville Ranchos when she asked for a ride home due to Olivio Wilson’s behavior.

He followed the pair up East Valley Road, around 11:30 p.m., and drove into the oncoming lane forcing the driver to take evasive action.

“He was using his automobile as a deadly weapon,” prosecutor William Murphy said at a bail hearing the day after Olivio Wilson’s arrest.

Deputies responded to East Valley at Fish Springs Road where the two vehicles were stopped. Olivio Wilson had to be dragged from the vehicle, according to court documents.

Olivio Wilson is in custody after he violated his bail conditions on Aug. 9. His attorney is seeking his release on his own recognizance. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 19.
