A woman from Reeds Spring who allegedly tried to run down her neighbors while she was drunk was bound over for trial after her preliminary hearing last week.
Jennifer Richardson testified that she and her husband, Craig, were outside doing yard work on May 13, 2013, when Marjorie Irene Crawford, 53, walked over to their yard on Tracy Lane and began arguing with them over a trespassing dispute. The Richardson's say Crawford began hitting and punching Mr. Richardson before she got in her car and "backed into him."
Crawford suffered a facial injury from a weed eater after Craig Richardson smashed the garden tool through the drivers side window after Crawford "said she was going to kill Jen."
Trooper Evan Terrell said Crawford smelled of alcohol and had blood shot eyes when he went to interview her shortly after the alleged assault. "She said she knew she was a drunk but she hadn't had anything to drink since noon that day," the trooper testified.
Craig Richardson suffered a back injury, whiplash and an elbow injury that will require surgery in the attack.
