A Wilmington woman has been charged with assault after Delaware State Police say she struck her husband with a car following an argument.
Thirty-seven-year-old Danette Hammond was also charged with reckless endangering and criminal contempt of a domestic violence protective order.
Police say Hammond’s husband asked her to leave a residence in Selbyville, and he got personal items for her. Police say as the husband walked away, Hammond accelerated her vehicle and pinned him against the garage door.
The 39-year-old victim sustained minor injuries and did not require medical attention. Hammond next placed her vehicle in reverse, narrowly missing a 13-year-old boy, according to authorities.
Following the altercation Hammond fled the scene and was later apprehended by police.
