A Wildwood woman was arrested after allegedly using her automobile to pin a girl against the bumper of another vehicle.

Shanc’ie Tequlia Austin, 20, had been arguing with two juvenile sisters at about 7 p.m. Thursday in the 500 block of Oak Street when she climbed behind the wheel of a grey four-door sedan and got in the driver’s side, according to an arrest report from the Wildwood Police Department. Austin, who stands 4 feet 11 inches tall, struck one of the girls with the car’s front bumper and proceeded to use her car to pin the girl against the bumper of another car. The other sister began beating on Austin’s vehicle and ordered her to back up.

Austin fled the scene. An ambulance crew arrived at the scene to evaluate the injuries of the girl who had been pinned against the bumper.

The girl, who had suffered a stomach injury, said Austin had driven at her at “full speed,” the report said. Austin’s vehicle left skid marks at the scene.

Austin was arrested at noon Saturday at her resident at 104 Lemon St.

She is facing felony charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and leaving the scene of an accident.

She was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $11,250.
