A Phenix City woman faces an aggravated assault charge for hitting a woman with her car in the parking lot of a Dollar General, Columbus police said.
The assault stemmed from a verbal argument the suspect had with a 41-year-old woman at the 3729 Macon Road Store around 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The suspect, identified by police as Debbie L. Owens, 48, then got into her 2008 Dodge Avenger and allegedly hit the woman with her car, reports state.
The woman is listed by police as uninjured.
Moments after allegedly striking the other woman, the younger woman’s daughter sprayed Mace into Owens’ face. Someone called officers, and they arrested Owens outside the store, police said.
