THIBODAUX, LA (WVUE) -

An argument over a 2012 Chevrolet Cruz ended up with one woman being hit by the car and another woman in jail.

Thibodaux police officers were called to Andolsek Park on Thursday after witnesses said Brittany Johnston hit a woman with the car and dragged her under the vehicle.

Investigators say Johnston was arguing with the victim, whose husband cosigned for the car, about leaving it parked until Johnston had the proper insurance coverage on the vehicle.
Police say that's when Johnston put the vehicle in reverse and struck the victim. The victim was caught under the open driver's door and drug through the parking lot.  We're told witnesses kept yelling at Johnston to stop the car. 

Police booked Johnston with aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon. She bonded out of the Lafourche Parish Detention Center after posting a $500 bond. As a condition of her bail, Johnston is not allowed to go near the victim.

The victim had to be taken to the Thibodaux Regional Medical Center to be treated for her injuries.
