Woman accused of ramming former boyfriend's car with hers


A Pine Bluff woman who was allegedly mad at her former boyfriend broke the windows of his vehicle with a crowbar Tuesday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Thursday during a court hearing for the woman, Monesha Griffin.

Kizer said breaking the windows “apparently wasn’t enough because she got into her vehicle, backed up to get a running start and rammed her vehicle into the man’s vehicle, causing it to go through a patio window and wall.”

Detective Sgt. Derrick Neal said in a probable cause affidavit the incident occurred at 200 W. 33rd Ave. after Griffin and the alleged victim got involved in a verbal argument.

When Griffin was interviewed, Neal said she “admitted causing the damage because she was angry.”

Kizer said Griffin had previously been charged with five failures to appear since 2008 and resolved four of those last year.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Griffin after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with criminal mischief.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Griffin.
