A Madison woman charged with driving her car over the head of another woman on Jackson Street Southeast in Decatur was released from Morgan County Jail on Thursday after posting a $15,000 bond.
Josie Michelle McClellan, 28, was charged with first-degree assault, a Class B felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
In an affidavit, Decatur police Detective Sean Mukaddam said McClellan and Dana Beerman were having a verbal argument Tuesday while in McClellan’s vehicle, which was in front of Beerman’s Jackson Street home.
“The two continued the argument while Beerman was retrieving her belongings from the passenger floorboard. McClellan put the vehicle in reverse and accelerated,” Mukaddam wrote after interviewing Beerman.
“The door of the vehicle knocked Beerman to the ground and a tire of the vehicle ran over her head,” he continued. “Beerman sustained multiple broken bones while being run over by the vehicle.”
