A Broken Arrow woman was arrested for allegedly assaulting her mother and nearly running over neighbors trying to help out in front of her 4-year-old child Wednesday evening.
It started just after 7 p.m., when police were called to a home near 118th and Mingo in Bixby on a report of domestic assault in the presence of a minor.
Police said the victim told them that when she picked up her daughter, 28-year-old Lyndsay Spegal, she appeared to be on drugs and started a physical fight with her in the car, grabbing her around the throat.
According to a booking report, the mother told police that when they got to her Bixby home, Spegal began to wrestle her on the ground, then took the car keys.
Spegal then jumped into the drivers seat of the vehicle, with her 4-year-old daughter inside, and tried to take off as the grandmother attempted to get the child out.
Neighbors who ran to help were nearly run over, police said, and the grandmother jumped into the vehicle to avoid getting hit.
She was able to put the vehicle in park and told police that Spegal jumped out and ran away from the scene. She was later found at her Broken Arrow home and arrested.
Spegal faces charges of child endangerment, domestic assault & battery in the presence of a minor and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
