A man reported a woman intentionally struck his vehicle while a child was inside it during an incident on New Year's Eve.

Jackson County Sheriff's Office deputies were called for the report of aggravated assualt-family violence, cruelty to children and criminal damage to property on East Jefferson St. in Hoschton.

A man said his ex-girlfriend wanted to argue and kept "mouthing off" during a New Year's Eve party. When he tried to leave, he said the woman put a beer bottle behind the tires on his vehicle to keep the car from being moved.

The complainant said he put his son in the car and while he was trying to put his twins in the vehicle, the woman started driving laps around the house, chasing people in her car. When the woman's father tried to intervene, the woman nearly ran over his foot, according to the police report.

She allegedly began to drive down the driveway, stopped the vehicle and then put it in reverse and began ramming the vehicle while the son was inside.

The juvenile had a bump on his head and a family member said she planned to take him to the hospital.

Officers said there was major damage to both sides of the vehicle and window glass was on the ground. The deputy also reported seeing ruts on the ground from the tires of the vehicle that struck the complainant's.

Officers weren't able to make contact with the woman at the residence.
