A Lincoln County man is accused of hitting a pedestrian with a car after an altercation, Danville police said Monday.

Bryan Biggs, 36, of Stanford was arrested on a charge of second-degree assault, police said in a news release.

The name of the injured man is William Sharp, but Danville Police Chief Tony Gray said he didn't know Sharp's age, address or the extent of his injuries.

At 10:10 p.m. Sunday, Danville police were called to CVS Pharmacy on South Second Street, where someone had been struck by a vehicle in the parking lot.

Officers learned that a witness was following a white Chevrolet Impala that was southbound on Hustonville Road.

Police stopped the car near the Junction City limits, where the driver, Biggs, was arrested.

Sharp was taken to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center in Danville, where a spokesman said he was treated and released.

Police are investigating what started the altercation, and more charges are possible. Biggs remained in the Boyle County Detention Center; no bond had been set as of Monday morning.
