Things got all sorts of crazy out by the beach over the weekend, especially for a Clearwater woman who was arrested after she allegedly attacked a man and hit him with his own car. Yep, you read that correctly. She is accused of attacking some dude…with his own car.
According to the police report, the victim was coming back home at about 7 am after a long night out on the town. As he pulled his car into the driveway, investigators say he was attacked by 33-year-old Margaret Ann Rafferty. The victim said the woman juimped in his car and proceeded to punch and scratch him profusely. Before the assault was over, the victim suffered injuries on his face, arms, back and his chest. The victim attempted to leave the car to get away from the attack, but he left his car running, which didn’t go well. That’s when Rafferty reportedly slid behind the wheel and hit the victim with it.
The victim sustained even more injuries when the car crashed into him, such as bruises, road rash and scrapes. All in all, he was very lucky to have not been killed by the vehicular attack. The victim was taken to Morton Plant Hospital and treated for his injuries. When she was questioned by police, Rafferty said she never drove the victim’s car or became physical during the altercation. She also admitted to officers that she could not recall what had happened. Rafferty was arrested and charged with domestic battery and aggravated battery with a vehicle. There have been no updates on the victim’s status since he was treated at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater. Source: WFLA.com
