Woman allegedly attempted to run over boyfriend after verbal altercation

KCSO: Man was “backhanded” by girlfriend before having his leg grazed by vehicle

A woman allegedly grazed her boyfriend’s leg with her vehicle last Saturday after a verbal altercation over him consuming alcohol in her car.

The incident occurred near the Tracyton Post Office near May St. NW and Tracyton Blvd. NW, where the male told authorities he was “backhanded” by his girlfriend as she was driving, before pulling off the roadway and forcing him out of the vehicle.

According to a certificate of probable cause, after the male held up his middle fingers to his girlfriend, Crystal R. Soethe, she immediately turned around her vehicle and drove directly at her boyfriend who was standing on the sidewalk.

Soethe allegedly grazed her boyfriend’s right leg but did not injure him, documents state. Her vehicle then went up onto the sidewalk and collided with a picket fence at 634 Nichols Avenue.

When contacted by authorities, Soethe denied slapping her boyfriend, although his upper lip was swollen and cut inside. Soethe stated she slapped a cigarette out of his mouth as he tried lighting it inside her vehicle, according to a certificate of probable cause. She also admitted being upset and was only trying to drive near her boyfriend so she could get out and speak with him before she over-accelerated, causing her to drive onto the sidewalk and collide with the fence.
