Police say the first woman began mocking the allegedly intoxicated woman and videotaping her. This is when a third woman reportedly stepped in and told the first woman to leave the allegedly intoxicated woman alone.

According to police, the suspect then began berating the Good Samaritan, allegedly calling her names and yelling obscenities at her. When the third woman tried to escape to her vehicle, police say the suspect followed her and slammed the car door on her leg. The suspect also allegedly kicked the driver’s side door and slammed her fist on the hood of the vehicle, according to police.

When the woman tried to leave, police say the suspect blocked her way.

Eventually, the woman in the vehicle was able to leave, and police were called.
