According to records at the Clay County Courthouse, Betty C. Matherly, 66, got into a physical altercation with an unidentified male victim, allegedly scratching and hitting him with a cast on her arm.
When the two exited the house, Matherly told officers who responded to the scene that she intended to hit him with her van.
Officials told The Brazil Times the victim was not treated for any injuries at the scene, but they were unaware if he sought medical treatment later.
Taken into custody and transported to Clay County Justice Center, Matherly was preliminarily booked on domestic battery, criminal recklessness and invasion of privacy charges with a cash bond of $7,000 (no 10 percent allowed).
After a case review by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office, Matherly was formerly charged in Clay Superior Court with two counts of A misdemeanor, including domestic battery and criminal recklessness Monday.
She appeared via videoconference from the CCJC.
A no contact order was issued on behalf of the victim.
Matherly advised the court she would hire private counsel and a jury trial was tentatively scheduled for Feb. 24.
With bond reduced to $5,000 (with 10 percent allowed), Matherly has since bonded out to await further court proceedings in the matter.
