Port St. Lucie, Fla (The Weekly Vice) -- A Florida minivan Mom attempts to run over her husband over a $300 dispute.
Leslie Anne Brown, a 34 year old mother and potentially soon to be ex-wife has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and child abuse after attempting to run her husband over with the family minivan.
According to St. Lucie authorities, an argument erupted between the couple in the morning hours over $300. When the dispute turned into a shoving match, Nicholas Brown attempted to take the couple's child away from Leslie, his wife.
Mrs. Brown jerked the child away, grabbed a suitcase and headed out to the family's minivan, as the husband, Nicholas followed.
After seat belting the child into a car seat, Leslie Brown hopped in and punched the gas, chasing her husband around the yard in the minivan. According to deputies, the angry mother attempted to run her husband over approximately 20 times as he fled.
Attempting to slow the pursuing minivan down, Nicholas Brown threw a brick at the vehicle's windshield. Sheriff's deputies arrived a short time later, placing Leslie Ann Brown under arrest.
According to reports, the child was unharmed and has been temporarily placed with Leslie Brown's mother.
Brown was transported to the St. Lucie County Jail where she was ordered held on a $2,750 bond. She posted the bond and was released Saturday evening.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
So are we missing something here? The child was placed with the Grandmother, where Leslie Brown will likely go, following her release from jail on child abuse charges? Interesting.
