Woman arrested after trying to use car as deadly weapon
BATON ROUGE - Police said a woman is facing an attempted murder charge after she tried to hit another woman with her car.
40-year-old Deon Pullins was booked into the parish prison on charges of attempted second degree murder and criminal damage to property in connection with the May 11 incident.
BRPD reports Pullins drove a Toyota Camry at the victim in an effort to injure or kill her at around 4:12 p.m. The victim was able to identify Pullins by name and out of a photo line up that was presented to her during the investigation.
The victim said the woman drove through her fence and straight at her. Police said the victim was able to jump behind a tree, causing Pullins to wreck her vehicle.
The victim went on to say that Pullins was able to get her car unstuck from the tree she had used as cover before fleeing the area. The victim confirmed to police that if it were not for the tree, she surely would have been hit by the vehicle.
East Baton Rouge EMS medics were also able to serve as eyewitnesses to the victim’s story, confirming the events that had transpired.
