At around 2:20 p.m. Saturday, Crockett called police to the Eagle’s Landing Apartments at 8000 Decker Lane after trying to get his car back from a woman who loaned the vehicle and did had not returned it back. With the help of GPS installed by the dealership, Crockett and his friend were able to track down where the car was located.

Police were told that the woman who was driving the car also had a man in the passenger seat who had gotten in a recent altercation with Crockett earlier in the week. Crockett, who was in the apartment complex sitting in the passenger seat of his friend’s car, told dispatch that two men were approaching them.
