Billy Chambers has pleaded guilty to attempted assault and hit-and-run after purposefully running a woman off the road near 23rd and Jackson in June. He could face up to 22 months in prison, according to Publicola.
Chambers, who was previously one of three people found guilty as a juvenile for the 2008 killing to Ed “Tuba Man” McMichael, ran his car into a female victim’s car June 23 after the woman filed a police report against him in reference to an earlier car prowl.
He apparently ran into the back of her car, then pulled up on the passenger side and ran her vehicle off the road where it hit a tree. He then fled.
Publicola reports that this is Chambers’ first strike under Washington’s three strikes law:
Until now, Chambers has managed to skirt Washington’s three strikes law. Chambers’ convictions as a juvenile—for robbery, possession of stolen property, and manslaughter in the Tuba Man case—don’t count as strikes, and his only adult convictions are for theft.
