A Rock Island man is being sought by authorities for allegedly hitting a man with his pick-up truck and then driving away with the man lying on the hood of the vehicle.

Moline police issued an arrest warrant Thursday for Willie Hugh Williams, 48, of 1229 11th St., Rock Island.

He faces counts of aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony, and reckless conduct, a Class A misdemeanor. He is expected to be held on a $10,000 bond upon his arrest.

On April 19, Mr. Williams allegedly drove his 1994 Chevrolet K1500 pick-up truck into another man "and then continued driving with (the victim) on the hood of the truck," court records say.

Documents say the alleged victim was injured, but did not indicate to what extent. Moline police could not be reached for comment Monday.
