An arrest warrant has been issued for a woman who pleaded guilty to aggravated battery after running her boyfriend down with her car after an argument in Luling last October.
Carolyn Brown, 52, was put on active probation for two years in January after pleading down from an initial charge of attempted second-degree murder. She received a suspended sentence of two years in prison that she could have avoided by fulfilling her probation terms.
But according to court records, a warrant was issued for her arrest on Feb. 9, citing she did not fulfill the terms of her probation, and noting she “failed to follow the instructions of the court.” As per her probation, Brown was ordered to submit to substance abuse evaluation and follow all court recommendations for treatment, pay a monthly probation fee of $60 and a fine of $500 plus court costs.
The October incident with her then-boyfriend began after Brown dropped the victim, a Baton Rouge man, off at his sister’s residence on Paul Frederick Street. She received a call from him later on requesting she bring him a set of clothes so he could shower, according to court records.
About 15 minutes later, she arrived and the two began yelling at one another with Brown reportedly accusing him of cheating on her before the man attempted to walk away toward U.S. Highway 90.
Brown then got in her Hyundai Sonata and reportedly turned it toward the man and chased him.
He told police he slipped and fell before getting to the side to the road. At that point, she left the roadway and struck him with her vehicle. He said he felt a tire run over his right hip. After the incident, the victim called 911.
According to the victim’s police statement, Brown’s son and son’s girlfriend were in the car with Brown during the incident. He also noted he and Brown had a relationship of 22 years.
Police found tire marks leaving the roadway where the incident took place.
The man suffered minor injuries, including road rash on his back, arms and right wrist. He also complained of pain in his right hip.
