ATL attorney charged with murder after running over real estate neighbor exec with his MB
[Mail] An Atlanta attorney has been charged with murder over what police believe was a brutal road rage incident.
Bad hook turns deadly.
Bryan Keith Schmitt, 47, was indicted on on counts of murder, felony murder and aggravated assault on Friday over the death of Hamid Jahangard, 60, in the affluent area of Sandy Springs.
Schmitt hit Jahangard, a prominent real estate investor, with his 2011 model Mercedes CLS 550 on the morning of July 30.
Schmitt has maintained it was an accident, but investigators now believe the attorney deliberately plowed into Jahangard in a fit of fury.
The clash between the two men began when Schmitt's expensive sedan was hit by a golf ball purportedly thrown by Jahangard, who was standing near several trash cans at the end of a large driveway belonging to one of the rental properties he owned in the area.
Schmitt says that when he heard the golf ball hit his Mercedes, he stopped and made a U-turn to confront Jahanhgard.
