Woman arrested after allegedly trying to run down man
A Windsor woman wanted by police after allegedly trying to run down her common-law husband with his car on the weekend has turned herself in.
Robin Brierley, 45, was arrested Thursday after showing up at the Windsor police headquarters just before 7 a.m.
The incident began in the 900 block of Broadway Street Saturday afternoon.
Police said what started as an argument between Brierley and her common-law husband quickly escalated.
As Brierley drove away from her home, the man stood in front of his white Chrysler LHS in an attempt to prevent her from driving away.
Brierley is alleged to have driven toward him in an attempt to hit him, then sped off with him clinging to the hood.
Investigators said Brierley made several driving maneuvers in an attempt to knock the man off the hood of the car.
Brierley succeeded with the man eventually falling onto the pavement near Matchette Road before she fled the scene, police said.
The man was treated in hospital for scrapes to his forehead and hands, as well as for sore ribs and difficulty breathing.
Police have recovered the Chrysler Brierley had been driving at the time of the incident.
Brierley will appear in court Thursday on charges of criminal negligence causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, mischief and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
