34-year-old Brian Dewitt was charged with two counts of violating an order of protection, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia when his wife told officers he ran her off the road in April and he was found with what resembled a crack pipe at her apartment again May 8th.
On April 20th, Aya Dewitt informed authorities that her estranged husband Brian Dewitt had visited her in violation of a restraining order. According to an affidavit, they had spoken on the phone April 17th and Brian told Aya “give me 12 hours and I will be there”. On the 20th, she recognized her husband’s motorcycle at the Neely Meadows Apartment complex located at 600 Cheyanne Boulevard.
She left immediately stopping at Rollin’s Market located at 1200 East Hickory Boulevard to make an emergency call about the incident. Aya advised officers that Brian forced her Scion to leave the roadway from his motorcycle. She also captured him on camera telling her “Aya, please forgive me!” She utilized the opportunity to get away and fled to the Madison Precinct.
Then on May 8th, officers were dispatched to Neely Apartments in regard to a 911 hang up. According to another affidavit, officers made contact with Brian who told them he had just left Aya’s apartment. At this time, Brian Dewitt was placed into custody for two outstanding warrants.

Aya Dewitt told the authorities that she had lent her car to her husband and when he returned they had an argument because he wanted to borrow money.
On May 8th, Brian Dewitt was arrested and charged with two counts of violating an order of protection, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. He is currently jailed in lieu of a $33,500 bond.
