Background 
The charges against Carranza stem from a May 11 incident in which he and the victim were driving in separate vehicles when he is alleged to have intentionally sideswiped the victim’s vehicle and then struck it in the rear with his vehicle. The vehicles were being driven on South Main Street near Mountain View Road in the south part of Rowell at the time. The incident is believed to have been a continuation from an altercation Carranza instigated with the victim the previous day. Following the collisions, the victim drove to a nearby tire shop and Carranza followed. The two men fought at the shop, with Carranza allegedly slamming the other man’s head against concrete before leaving.
