FIRST ON 3: B.J. Wright has another brush with the law over the weekend
COLUMBUS CO., NC (WWAY) — B.J. Wright is on the radar again. Sunday morning around 1:00 a.m., he was riding with a woman names Crystal Gail Lee when state troopers say Lee ran a checkpoint. They chased Lee and Wright and eventually Lee decided to pull over.
But troopers say as they approached the car, she tried to drive off again, swerving and hitting one of them.
Troopers chased her again, shoving her car off the road. One trooper hit a four foot deep ditch, and flipped his car completely over – landing back on all four wheels.
Wright has told the media he had an ongoing sexual relationship with former State Senator R.C. Soles and that Soles has given him hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.
Lee faces multiple charges including DWI, assault on an officer and driving without a license.
At this point, no charges have been filed against Wright.
