A Macon police officer allegedly attempted to shoot his ex-wife and another man after tailing them in his vehicle and ramming their car Wednesday morning in Macon.

Several hours later, 39-year-old Carlos Antonio Wilson turned himself in to deputies, according to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

The events began around 1 a.m. when Resheema Wilson and Hiram Simmons, both 41, noticed a vehicle following them and pulled into the Food Mart at 4381 Mercer University Drive, the sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Sean DeFoe said in a news release.

Investigators said at that point Wilson’s ex-husband got out of his 2006 Chevy Equinox and allegedly started shooting at Resheema and Hiram. They drove off and Wilson followed them again down Log Cabin Drive until he allegedly rammed their car at Napier Avenue, causing both vehicles to wreck, DeFoe said.

Carlos brandished his handgun as he pulled Reeshema Wilson from the vehicle, DeFoe said. But deputies arrived at the wreck scene, and Carlos fled the area on foot.

Around 3:30p.m. Wilson turned himself over to members of the Southeastern Regional Fugitive Task Force and was later was transported to the Bibb County jail, DeFoe said.

He has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated assault family violence, kidnapping, aggravated stalking, violation of oath by public officer, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to jail records.

Wilson, who officials said was an employee of Medical Center of Central Georgia Police Department, was being held Thursday without bond at the jail.

On Thursday the spokeswoman for the police department, Janie Pulnott, declined to comment on whether Wilson was still an employee.

Anyone with information in reference to this incident is urged to contact the Bibb Sheriff’s Office at (478) 751 -7500 and ask to leave a message for the on-call Investigator.
