A Fairborn woman is facing charges after she reportedly got into an argument and hit another woman with a car earlier this is month in Dayton.

Ashley Shantea Brooks, 35, was charged with two counts of felonious assault, according to Dayton Municipal Court records.

Brooks was at an apartment Aug. 9 on Elliot Avenue in Dayton with her friends. One of the women told police that Brooks became intoxicated and belligerent, which led to an argument between Brooks and a second woman, according to a court affidavit.

While outside, Brooks also reportedly began to fight with a third woman, a 36-year-old Dayton woman who pushed Brooks to the ground and walked away, an affidavit read.

Brooks got into her car, a blue 2011 Chevrolet Malibu, and started it and then accelerated at the third woman, according to court records.

“The vehicle struck [the third woman] and knocked her to the ground,” the documents read. “The vehicle drove on top of [the woman’s] body with the front bumper at her chest.”

Brooks then backed up the car, got out and ran away.

The victim went to a local hospital, where she was treated for scrapes, abrasions and skin loss on her foot and lower leg, according to court records. The victim reportedly has issues walking and needs support to help care for a baby.

Brooks was arrested Friday in Trotwood and booked into the Montgomery County Jail. Her bail was set at $20,000 during her Monday arraignment, but 10% of her bond was paid Monday afternoon. Once released, she was to be on electronic home detention, court records show.

She is next due Aug. 23 for a preliminary hearing in Dayton Municipal Court.
