An Atlanta woman is facing criminal charges after she reportedly ran over the foot of a local business owner.

 

Tuesday evening, police were called to Orr’s Wrecker Service after receiving information a woman had damaged property with her car.

 

The owner of the business said he witnessed the driver, identified as Brenna Alexis Smith, back into a pole, nearly striking several people in the parking lot. After calling 911, the owner reportedly attempted to talk to the driver, who requested for the police not to get involved and offered the owner $200.

 

The owner declined the offer and and ran over his foot while trying to leave, according to Col. James Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

 

Smith then drove through the front yard of the property, through a fence and off a retaining wall before speeding off down Highway 29, according to the report.

 

Deputies intercepted Smith near Newnan South Industrial and took her into custody without incident. Smith reportedly told police she was attempting to turn around in the parking lot when she was approached by the business owner who was cursing at her.

 

While helping Smith search for her driver’s license, deputies found a device used to inhale nitrous oxide. Smith reportedly admitted to using the drug the day before.

 

Smith, 23, was charged with aggravated assault and criminal damage to property.
