LYONS — A local man who purposely hit another car with his vehicle was convicted of a felony and misdemeanor charge following a Wayne County trial.

In a news release, District Attorney Mike Calarco said Tylor J. Felix was found guilty Wednesday of second-degree criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child. The latter charge is a misdemeanor.

Calarco, who prosecuted the case, said the charges stem from a March 2021 incident in Galen. Police said Felix tried to drive his vehicle into someone else’s lane of travel, but the other person swerved to avoid a head-on collision. Police said Felix turned around, caught up to the other driver and hit the vehicle, causing damage. Felix then drove away.

A young child was in the other vehicle.

There were no injuries.

Calarco said Felix is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 4.
