Woman Hits Man With Her Car in Argument Over Casino Parking Spot: Cops
An argument over parking escalated quickly at a New Mexico casino late last week when cops say a woman drove her car into her rival for a spot.
Bernalillo County authorities have slapped Yvonne Aragon with charges of assault with a deadly weapon in the encounter at the Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque, which cops say occurred Friday.
Cops say the spat became even crazier after the victim tossed his coffee on Aragon's car, at which time she allegedly pulled out a pistol.
Responding officers say they discovered bruises on the victim's leg that matched a skeleton on Aragon's license plate.
"The victim stated that he was saving a spot for his wife to park in," Captain Andi Taylor with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office told KOB. “So he was standing in the parking spot."
Police say Aragon admitted to hitting the victim with the car but denied pointing a gun at him.
The 45-year-old faces two felony battery charges for what Taylor said amounted to her ill-advised reaction to her exasperation.
"Potentially she has felonies on her record all because she was impatient and decided to react in a hostile, negative manner," Taylor said.
