Recommended Posts

man who was free on bond after being accused of firing numerous shots at another motorist in Spotsylvania County two months ago is back in jail after police said he fired a shot at a tow-truck driver early Thursday.

Devin Thomas Chewning, 20, of Spotsylvania was charged Thursday with attempted malicious wounding and reckless handling of a firearm.


According to Sheriff’s Maj. Troy Skebo and court records, the driver was attempting to tow a vehicle from in front of Chewning’s home in the 5600 block of Brentwood Lane about 1:50 a.m. when Chewning’s girlfriend came out to confront him. The vehicle apparently was not displaying the proper sticker to be parked where it was, police said.


Police said the woman assaulted the driver, took his keys and destroyed the key fob. Sarina Music was charged with assault, petty larceny and destruction of property.


Skebo said Chewning then came out of the home displaying a firearm. He fired a shot toward the driver before going back into the home.

Spotsy man to serve 2 years in prison for shooting


A Spotsylvania County man who fired a shot during a 2021 dispute with a tow-truck driver was ordered Monday to serve just over two years in prison.


Devin Chewning, 22, pleaded guilty in Spotsylvania Circuit Court to possessing a firearm as a felon and reckless handling of a firearm. He was sentenced to a total of six years with all but two years and four months suspended.


According to police and court records, Chewning was free on bond as the result of another shooting incident when a tow-truck driver showed up to the 5600 block of Brentwood Lane early June 10, 2021. As the driver was hooking up a car in preparation to tow it, Chewning’s girlfriend confronted him. During that part of the altercation, the young woman assaulted the driver and was punched in the face.


Chewning came to the door and fired a shot before going back into the home. He was on bond at the time as the result of an incident a couple of months earlier during which someone fired shots at another motorist in Spotsylvania. Chewning was eventually cleared of those charges.
