Michael Robert Hoeft, 46, was indicted Wednesday on charges of aggravated assault and two counts of damage to property.
On March 20, Hoeft confronted a repo man attempting to take his Dodge Durango from outside his home at 1:17 a.m. in the 1900 block of North Lewis Avenue.
Hoeft jumped into the Durango and backed it into the tow truck, damaging the tow arm, police spokesman Sam Clemens said.
The repo man, 41, was able to avoid being struck by the tow chains.
Clemens said Hoeft then got back into the Durango, drove through his neighbor’s chain link fence and sped off.
That afternoon, police received a tip that Hoeft was at a home in the 1800 block of East 31st Street North. He was at the home when police arrived and was arrested.
