Davies sentenced in attempted first-degree assault case

BRIGHTON -- Seven years in the Department of Corrections.

That's the sentence for 35-year-old Allen Davies after his guilty plea to a charge of attempted first-degree assault that happened in June 2021. Davies entered his plea earlier this spring.

According to a press statement, Davies was upset after a tow truck company towed his Chevy Blazer from his home on Logan Street in unincorporated Adams County. The statement said Davies threatened to kill the driver if the vehicle was not returned.

Later, Davies showed up at the tow lot and found a driver inside his truck. The victim told authorities Davies cut him off in a Ford Mustang and began yelling in his direction with a gun in hand. The press statement said the victim wasn't the tow truck driver who towed Davies' vehicle.

The statement said Davies approached the driver, climbed onto the running board of the truck and pressed the gun to the victim's neck. The victim's cell phone rang, which distracted Davies long enough to let the victim leave the area and for Davies to fall from the truck. As the victim drove off, Davies fired twice at his truck.

Adams County sheriff's deputies found a .40-caliber shell casing at the scene. They also determined the phone used to make the threatening call and the Blazer belonged to Davies. The statement said the victim picked Davies out of a photo lineup.Davies' sentence also includes three years of mandatory parole.

"We will not tolerate this kind of behavior in our community," said District Attorney Brian Mason in the statement. "This defendant thought that threatening the life of a tow driver who was doing his job would somehow get his vehicle back. But in the end, all it did was earn him a stint in prison."
