Police: Woman repeatedly rammed vehicle

From the Las Vegas Optic

A Mora woman intentionally rammed her vehicle into another vehicle — nearly hitting two men — fled the scene, then returned to ram the vehicle four more times, according to a criminal complaint filed in Mora Magistrate Court.

Amity F. Maes, 29, was arrested March 15 and charged with two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, among other charges.

New Mexico State Police was called to a stretch of NM-518 around 9:30 p.m. March 14 after a woman reported the incident. The woman told police she’d been traveling south on 518 when she pulled off the road to locate something she’d dropped.

While parked on the side of the road, the woman’s brother and a friend walked up to the car to talk to her. While chatting with the two men, she said Maes drove up and stopped in front of her car, then backed up in “a fast motion,” striking her car and nearly hitting the two men, according to the complaint.
