UPDATE: Woman accused of trying to run over man arrested Friday
(ABC 6 News) – Rochester police reported Monday that a woman who allegedly tried to run over a man near the Dairy Queen on Frontage Road was taken into custody Friday, Feb. 10.
Jolene Schultz of Rochester was charged Monday, Feb. 13, with two counts of 2nd-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of domestic assault.
According to Lt. Jennifer Hodgman with the RPD, officers who reported to the area near Dairy Queen spoke to a witness and saw tire tracks leading off road that indicated Schultz tried to strike the alleged victim with her car.
Court records allege that an adult male had walked to the area of the Dairy Queen after a verbal fight with Schultz.
According to the alleged victim, Schultz followed him to the parking lot in her vehicle and “gunned” the car at him.
The victim told police he tried to jump out of the way of the car, but was struck by her car. He said the car ran over the lower half of his body, and was later diagnosed with a broken ankle, according to court documents.
The victim said Schultz exited the car after hitting him and punched him several times in the face before getting back in her car and driving away.
The alleged victim reportedly declined to go to the hospital, but went to an emergency room later to be “checked out,” Hodgman said.
Schultz was arrested at her residence Friday, the day after the reported assault.
Her next court appearance is scheduled for March 9, 2023.
