A dispute between a woman and her former boyfriend last week resulted in the man receiving non-life threatening injuries after the woman allegedly ran over him with her vehicle.
Sierra Gant, 19, also reportedly told the man she was “going to kill him,” Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing Thursday for Gant .
Detective Bill Wiegand reported that Gant and the man had been involved in a relationship and had a child together but the relationship had ended.
On June 22, the man told police he was walking to a store when he saw Gant following him with her vehicle and at one point, she got out of the vehicle with a baseball bat and tried to hit the man, Kizer said.
Wiegand reported that the man said he was able to take the bat away from Gant before she could hit him and continued to walk to the Save-A-Lot grocery at Sixth Avenue and Ash Street.
Kizer said the man told police he had walked onto the parking lot when Gant drove her vehicle at him and hit him, causing him to bounce off the hood of the vehicle.
Wiegand reported that two witnesses, who did not know Gant or the man, confirmed details of the incident, and police recovered a hub cap from Gant’ s vehicle at the scene.
After the incident, Gant left and was located and arrested Tuesday.
The man received injuries to his legs and arm, according to the police report.
Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $50,000 bond for Gant after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with criminal attempt second-degree murder.
Bridgforth also ordered Gant to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.
Gant said she would hire her own attorney and was told to come back to court Aug. 23 at 9 a.m.
