Jefferson authorities were recently called for a report of simple battery during an incident between two drivers.

The Jefferson Police Department responded to the incident on June 11 on Hog Mountain Rd.

The complainant said she passed the suspect’s vehicle on I-85 and said the driver then sped up and began driving recklessly. After exiting the interstate, the complainant said the suspect pulled up beside her at the intersection of Hog Mountain Rd. and Hwy. 129. The driver allegedly cursed at the woman, called her a cracker and threw paper, cans and bottles at her car.

At one point, the suspect got out of the vehicle and approached and the complainant got out of her vehicle so her two daughters wouldn’t be involved in the incident.

When she asked the suspect “what her problem was,” she told her she was going to make her late for work.

She also reportedly told the complainant to get back into her vehicle and that she had a gun in her car.

The suspect then allegedly approached the woman, grabbed her hair, pulled her back to her car and began punching her. The two daughters intervened and tried to separate the two and one of them was struck in the arm during the fight.

The suspect ultimately got into her vehicle, “flicked off” the complainant and drove away.

Officers found vehicle registration in the roadway and the complainant confirmed the identity of the suspect based on the photo. The two daughters said the photo appeared to be the suspect, but they weren’t certain.
