A DeLand police officer headed to the scene of a reported domestic dispute on Saturday morning, Oct. 5. On the way to the location, dispatch told him a woman was using a vehicle to try to run over a man.

When the officer got to the site, he was told by a 27-year-old woman that she and her boyfriend had gotten into a quarrel regarding damage he had done to her vehicle using a child’s bicycle.

However, when police officers talked to the boyfriend, he told quite a different story. He said he and his girlfriend were arguing “about another female he was involved with.”

He said his girlfriend tried to hit him with her vehicle and that he picked up a child’s bicycle, because he believed his girlfriend might not run him over if he was holding a bike.

This assumption was disproved by Girlfriend: She drove toward Boyfriend even faster, so he threw the bike at Girlfriend’s windshield. Then he ran away, and began walking along another street.

Girlfriend sought him out and struck him with the vehicle, sending him flying into some bushes.

Police officers concluded that Girlfriend was the primary aggressor, so they arrested her and took her to jail.
