In February 2019, when the woman drove off with her four children, Kendrick Piggie chased her for 30 minutes, ramming her car, brandishing a gun, and threatening to kill her, prosecutors said.
The woman drove to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department division office and informed officers that Piggie had hit her car and had a gun.
Despite being at the police station, prosecutors said Piggie rammed the woman’s car two more times and fired six shots, hitting her car twice.
Piggie tried to escape, but he wrecked his SUV and was captured hiding behind trash bins.
A jury convicted Piggie on November 19 of multiple charges, including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and assault with a deadly weapon with a minor present.
The judge sentenced Piggie to 60 to 84 months in prison and handed down up to another two years on Piggie’s sentence but agreed to suspend it if he completes 36 months of supervised probation.
As of this morning Mr. Piggie remains in the custody of MCSO. It is unclear if he will serve any time in addition to the 25 months he was held before making bail on March 26, 2021.
At trial he was remanded to the MCSO and taken into custody, and it remains unclear if the judge ordered the suspended sentence in lieu an active sentence or if the suspended sentence only applies to the felon with a gun charge and will run consecutively.
