BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A woman accused of purposely hitting one person and then slamming into two houses is now behind bars.

According to court documents, Krystle Mealey, 32, of Baton Rouge, was arrested Monday.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported Mealey tried to use her car to hit three people who were standing in front of a house on North 26th Street near Convention Street on May 22.

Her bond is set at $160,000.
