A Greeneville woman was charged with aggravated domestic assault about 5:45 p.m. Thursday following a near-deadly confrontation with a man involving a car in the 900 block of Carson Street.
Heather Nicole Doud, 24, appeared Friday in Greene County General Sessions Court on the charge.
A man allegedly struck by a car driven by Doud suffered a leg injury, and a utility pole and fire hydrant were also the worse for wear by the time the incident was over.
Greeneville police had three different versions of events to consider.
Officers arriving at the scene spoke with Doud, who said she was trying to leave an address on Carson Street after arguing with a man.
"Heather stated she backed out and (the man) jumped on her hood as she was trying to leave," Officer James Craft said in a report.
Doud told officers she could not see, and her car struck a power pole, disabling it, the report said.
In the collision, Doud suffered a cut on her leg "and small glass on her chest area," the report said.
She refused treatment from Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Service and told EMS personnel that she would have "someone else" take her to the hospital, the report said.
The man suffered a leg injury and was taken by EMS to Johnson City Medical Center for treatment, the report said.
He told police that Doud backed her car out of the driveway during their argument "and struck a fire hydrant and got stuck," the report said.
The alleged victim told police she then floored the accelerator "and spun her tires moving toward (him)" before hitting him with the car as he tried to move.
The man told police that Doud's car "traveled a little further" and struck a wooden utility pole, breaking it.
A witness walking down the street told police that he saw Doud back into the fire hydrant "and then a young male run out into the road about 50 to 75 feet in front of Heather's car," the report said.
The witness said that the man stood in place for several seconds "as the car was coming at him, spinning its tires," the report said.
"The car then hit (the man) and proceeded to strike the power pole," the report said.
The witness told police that the man "stood his ground till he seen that Heather was not going to stop," the report said.
The man then "tried to jump to avoid being hit, catching his knee on the windshield of the vehicle," the report said.
The witness told police that the injured man "had time to move, and the driver did not bother to slow down."
Greeneville Light & Power System removed the broken utility pole and replaced it Friday, the report said.
The Greeneville Water Department was notified about the hydrant, the report added.
