A Lerna, Illinois resident was arrested in Mattoon Thursday on the charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, aggravated assault, criminal damage to property, and reckless driving. The charges against 35-year-old Shawn Sawyer(pictured to the right) allege that just after 2:00am he intentionally used his pickup truck to sideswipe and run another motorist off the roadway. Sawyer then allegedly assaulted the victim by using his truck to ram the victim’s vehicle, with the victim still therein. The victim was not injured in the attack. Sawyer received minor injuries and was treated and released at Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center. Following his release, he was taken to the Coles County jail.
