A 23-year-old Bryan woman was arrested late Thursday after police say she attempted to run over people in a College Station apartment complex parking lot.
According to College Station police, around 9:30 p.m., officers responded to an apartment complex on Luther Street. Witnesses said a car had made at least two rounds driving through the parking lot and had almost hit various people. One woman said she was on the sidewalk with her 3-year-old daughter when the car careened toward them at a high rate of speed. The woman said she grabbed her child and ran into the apartment, and the car hit a support pillar for an overhang.
Two more women said they had been in the path of the car and had to run to escape its path. A fourth woman with a child said she had to pull her toddler out of the car’s path. According to police, the Bryan woman returned to the scene in a damaged Chevrolet Impala and had slurred speech, glassy eyes and breath that smelled of alcohol. A breath sample showed the woman’s blood alcohol content was 0.14.
She is charged with deadly conduct, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail, and driving while intoxicated, a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail. It is The Eagle’s policy to not publicly identify those arrested on misdemeanor charges.
She remains in the Brazos County Jail on $6,000 bond.
