CHOCTAW, Oklahoma - A Choctaw woman was arrested after she was accused of ramming her vehicle into a man, police said.
Jennifer Brooke Pearce, 39, was arrested on complaints of assault with a dangerous weapon and causing a serious injury accident while intoxicated.
About 11:20 p.m. Monday, police were called to a residence in the 3300 block of Elizabeth Street in reference to a hit-and-run crash.
Police found 39-year-old Troy Dale Shrader pinned between a parked car and a running vehicle.
