Crystal Brooks - Jailed After Running Boyfriend Down With Truck When He Refused McDonald's Run

Kingsport, Tenn. (The Weekly Vice) - Crystal Greer Brooks, a 33-year-old Tennessee woman, was jailed Wednesday after she repeatedly struck her boyfriend with a pickup truck because he wasn't in the mood for McDonalds.

According to Kingsport Police, officers were dispatched to West Carters Valley Road early Wednesday morning after receiving a report of an alleged assault.

When officers arrived on the scene, they spoke with a witness who told them he, the victim and Brooks had been drinking when they all decided to go out for a midnight snack.

Brooks soon became angry when the victim, who is also the father of her child, refused to go to McDonalds.

At some point, Brooks raised a fuss and demanded that the victim pull his truck over to the side of the road so that she could drive.  The victim complied with her demand and was in the process of walking around the front of the vehicle when Brooks slipped into the driver's seat and punched the gas. That's when she allegedly struck the victim with his truck, sending him onto the hood of the vehicle and then onto the pavement.

Investigators say Brooks wasn't content with striking her boyfriend once, but proceeded to strike him two additional times with the vehicle.

The officer examined the victim, whose torn clothing and road rash injuries were "consistent with being dragged on the pavement," according to the arrest affidavit. The officer relied on the witness to gather details of the incident since the victim was unable to speak fluent English.

When the officer questioned Brooks about the altercation, she denied striking the victim and stated that he willing jumped onto the hood of his own truck. 

After gathering information and witness statements, Brooks was determined to be the primary aggressor in the altercation and was taken into custody at the scene.

She was booked into the Sullivan County Jail and charged with aggravated assault.
