A reportedly angry Tennessee woman was searching for her boyfriend and allegedly purposely smashed her car through the front of a store and drove around the aisles to try to find him.
On the afternoon of May 8, a 33-year-old woman in Nashville and her boyfriend were having a domestic dispute in the parking lot of a local Family Dollar store.
It was reported that the man walked away in the middle of the argument, and the woman was unable to locate him. She believed he went into Family Dollar. She allegedly climbed into her pickup truck and positioned it to face the front of the store.
In an alleged attempt to find her boyfriend, the woman reportedly accelerated and crashed through the front door. She reportedly drove the vehicle around inside the establishment to try to locate the man.
The woman left before the authorities arrived, and officers from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department found her shortly after.
The woman was taken into custody and booked into the Davidson County Jail on a $377,000 bond. It is expected that she will face charges of attempted murder, three felony counts of aggravated assault, felony vandalism, robbery, and a misdemeanor charge for driving with a suspended license. When the store was inspected after the incident, it was assessed that there was $250,000 or more in damage.
At the time this was written, the suspect was still listed as an inmate on the jail roster.
Photographs of the scene displayed shattered glass from the windows and the door all over the inside of the store. The shelves and products were also among the destruction.
According to reports, no one was injured during the event.
