A domestic altercation Tuesday night led to charges and the arrest of a Taylorsville woman by the Elizabethtown Police Department.
Chelsea Marie Cross, 28, reportedly confronted another woman in a vehicle at a stop sign and then followed the same motorist on U.S. 62 and at one point “came over in an apparent attempt to run her into the emergency lane,” according to an arrest citation.
Cross reportedly got out of her vehicle on Howell Drive in Elizabethtown and confronted the woman, who was in her vehicle. She then got back in her vehicle and “began chasing” the woman on U.S. 62.
At one point, she reportedly pulled in front of the woman’s vehicle to block her. The woman was able to flee from Cross when both vehicles approached a police cruiser at a traffic stop. At that point, Cross made a U-turn and left the area.
She is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.
Cross also reportedly struck a man with a hand outside of a convenience store Tuesday night. That resulted in a charge of with fourth-degree assault, domestic violence with no visible injury, and harassment.
She is being held in lieu of a $5,500 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center.
