RALEIGH — An 23-year-old Durham man was arrested in Raleigh on Sunday after police say he intentionally drove off a road to hurt his passenger.
Raleigh police said Prince Rogers crashed into a grove of trees in the 5900 block of Lead Mine Road around 7:20 p.m.
Aleisha Lenee Byrd, 27, of Raleigh, was taken to WakeMed to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Rogers was charged with second-degree kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, assault on a female, driving while license revoked, reckless driving to endanger, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana, according to his arrest warrant.
Rogers also is accused of punching Byrd in the face and choking her.
Rogers has a history of reckless driving to endanger. He faced similar charges in December 2011.

He is being held in the Wake County Jail under a total bond of $510,000.
