Two Gainesville men were arrested Monday night after police say one of the men tried to run over an apartment complex manager twice with his truck after an argument about marijuana.

The manager told the Gainesville Police Department that she had approached Rahkee Hall, 22, of 501 SE 18th St., Apt. 12, and Amir Jackson, 24, of 14848 NW 143rd Terrace, in the parking lot of Village Crossing Apartments on Southeast 18th Street at 10:43 p.m. for smoking marijuana in Jackson’s truck, the police report said.

The manager, who said she knew Jackson did not live at the complex, began arguing with Jackson. After the argument, Jackson backed his truck out of the parking space and drove the vehicle at the victim, the report said.

The manager told police she jumped out of the way before she was hit by the vehicle. Police said Jackson then reversed the truck, tried to run over the manager again and later sped away from the scene, the report said.

Police later located Jackson and Hall near 900 SE 11th St., where after a search of the truck, officers reported finding a recently burned marijuana cigarette, 0.1 grams of marijuana wrapped in a Trident gum wrapper and 0.1 grams of marijuana in a plastic baggie, the report said.

Jackson was charged with aggravated assault and marijuana possession, while Hall was charged with marijuana possession and possession of drug equipment.

Jackson and Hall were being held Tuesday at the Alachua County jail in lieu of $7,500 and $2,000 bond respectively.
