A Luling woman accused of running her boyfriend down with her vehicle following an argument last week has been arrested and charged with attempted second-degree murder.
Carolyn Brown, 52, of 1337 Paul Fredrick St. in Luling, allegedly got in her Hyundai Sonata and struck the victim with it after the two had a verbal confrontation, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office. Brown allegedly drove off the roadway to strike the victim, whom had dated Brown on and off for years, according to police.
St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Pat Yoes said the man suffered several road rashes and complained of severe pain at the time of the incident, but suffered no life-threatening injuries.
He called 911 after the incident to report it to police. The Sheriff’s Office obtained an arrest warrant for Brown and began a search for her last Wednesday.
Yoes said Brown’s vehicle ran out of gas on Hwy. 3127 and a deputy recognizing her from a “be on the lookout” alert was able to arrest her.
The victim lives in Baton Rouge but was staying with his son, who lives in Boutte.
Brown is being held in Nelson Coleman Correctional Facility on a bail of $250,000. She is scheduled for a court arraignment Nov. 13.
