A Bethlehem woman was arrested April 13 for ramming her estranged husband’s car multiple times after he brought his girlfriend with him to her house to pick up tax documents.
When Barrow County sheriff’s deputy Bradley Arnold responded to the call, he found the woman’s husband, 29-year-old Kevin Singleton of Lawrenceville, hiding at Tanners Bridge Court and standing beside his wrecked Ford Explorer.
Singleton told the deputy he had gone to his estranged wife’s residence on Mill Creek Road to get some papers he needed for filing his tax returns.
He said 34-year-old Racquel Gloria Singleton became upset when she discovered he had brought his girlfriend with him.
The couple drove away on Tanners Bridge Road, but when their SUV turned onto Bethel Bower Road, Racquel Singleton’s Dodge Grand Caravan pulled up and struck the driver’s side of the SUV, reports said.
The SUV ran off the road, was struck a second time, and then spun out of control in a ditch before coming to a stop, according to the deputy’s report about the incident.
Kevin Singleton said his wife’s van then struck his vehicle a third time before leaving the scene.
Racquel Singleton admitted to the deputy that she had become angry and had followed her husband’s vehicle, but she said his SUV first struck her van.
However, after examining both vehicles, the deputy determined the wife had been the primary aggressor.
She was charged with aggravated assault and leaving the scene of an accident, officials said.
