A delivery of donuts to a child in her father’s custody led to the arrest of an East Ridge woman on Valentine’s Day.
According to an affidavit of complaint, Natalie Michelle Wiggins, 20, of a Belvoir Terrace Address, has been charged with Aggravated Domestic Assault, Aggravated Assault and Driving on a Suspended Drivers License.
The report states that Wiggins went to the Truman Avenue residence of her ex-boyfriend and the father of her child who is in his custody. Wiggins wanted to give the child donuts, the report states. The ex-boyfriend would not allow the child to get into the car with Wiggins for fear she would take the child, and he took the child back inside the house.
The report states that was when Wiggins became angry and started constantly blowing the car’s horn. A disorder ensued, the report states, between Wiggins and her ex-boyfriend “which involved both parties throwing the available donuts at each other.”
In an effort to get Wiggins to stop blowing the horn and leave the property, the ex-boyfriend and his grandfather came outside and stood in front of the vehicle. The report states that both the ex and the grandfather wanted Wiggins to back out of the driveway and leave. The report states that Wiggins told police that her ex-boyfriend kicked the front of her car and that she drove forward in an effort to strike both the ex and the grandfather. The report states that the ex-boyfriend jumped onto the hood of the car and the grandfather jumped to the side to avoid being struck.
The report states that Wiggins then drove forward through the front yard and onto the street where she was encountered by police.
Wiggins is due to appear in East Ridge Municipal Court on Feb. 16.
