Assault claim leads to Missouri woman's arrest

It is hard to imagine how a person might react upon arriving at his or her parked vehicle, only to find that someone is attempting to take it away. In fact, it would likely be easy to assume that the vehicle is being stolen or that the owner's safety may be in danger, potentially prompting him or her to take action to protect both property and safety. Unfortunately, a woman in Missouri now faces criminal charges after she was accused of assault in connection with someone trying to repossess a vehicle.

The incident that led to the woman's arrest happened just before 11:30 p.m. on a night in September. According to reports, police received a call from a man who claims he was attempting to repossess a vehicle. The man says that during the process, a woman entered the vehicle and drove away.

Unfortunately, the driver allegedly struck the man with the vehicle as she left. Despite this allegation, it is unclear if the man suffered any injuries. However, police tracked down the woman and arrested her. Law enforcement officers claim that she also had narcotics in her possession at the time.

In addition to the assault charge, the woman is also facing drug charges, including possession of a controlled substance and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. Unfortunately, the woman -- as most people in Missouri who have little legal training or experience do -- may be feeling overwhelmed about the decisions that she faces. Often, defendants face life-altering decisions without the benefit of being fully informed about their options. To help those in such a situation, there are, fortunately, experienced criminal defense attorneys who can help guide them throughout the process, including ensuring that those facing charges are prepared to make an informed decision.
