Wichita Falls woman arrested, accused of using vehicle as weapon

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A Wichita Falls woman was arrested on Sunday evening following an incident on the 8000 block of Tica Road.

Around 4:45 pm the Wichita County Sheriff's Office was called to a residence on Tica Road in reference to an assault.

Dispatch told responding deputies that the call involved a suspect trying to run over someone in their vehicle.

When deputies arrived on scene they spoke to a witness who said she saw a silver Dodge Journey speeding towards the victim before he moved out of the way.

The witness identified the driver as Stepheney Aaron Nettles, 21. The witness said Nettles got out of the vehicle and began to 'wrestle' with the male victim before getting back into the car and trying to run the victim over again.

The witness said when Nettles tried to hit the victim another time she struck a Jeep Sport under a car port.

The deputies spoke with the victim who said Nettles had called him on his cell phone and told him she was coming to 'burn the house down.' The victim said he walked outside to make sure nothing was going to happen when Nettles pulled up and tried to run him over.

The victim said Nettles got out the car and began hitting him. The deputy said he observed several fresh marks on the victim's neck and abdomen.

The victim said he was able to free himself from Nettles and place her back into the vehicle.

The victim said after that Nettles tried to run him over again before fleeing the scene.

The Burkburnett Police Department found Nettles and the suspect vehicle at a home in the 1100 block of Bishop Street.

Damage to the vehicle was consistent with the witness and victim's version of events.

Nettles was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. As of Monday afternoon, she was in the Wichita County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
