A Charles City man who allegedly fled the scene of an accident before being apprehended has been indicted on several charges.

Jesse Edward Mondine, 38, of the 7900 block of Roxbury Road, was handed up indictments on two counts of unauthorized use of a vehicle, and misdemeanor counts of carrying a concealed weapon, DUI (second offense), refuse to take a breathalyzer (second offense), and driving with no license by a Charles City grand jury.

According to the indictment, on Oct. 8, 2018, Mondine allegedly fled the scene of a vehicle crash. When a witness described how the suspect looked to authorities, a K-9 unit was brought in, locating Mondine in the nearby woodland area. Upon his arrest, it was alleged that he had the scent of alcohol on him and a revolver was discovered in his back pocket. When the owner of a truck and a boat that it was towing was called to see if the defendant could use the vehicle, the owner said he had not granted permission.
