BILOXI, Miss.- A boy was sent to the hospital after he was hit by a car when he was in his front yard around 7:30 Tuesday evening. Police arrested 33-year-old Jennifer Roth for aggravated assault, manifesting extreme indifference to human life.
Roth was speeding through the Suncoast Villas, when she drove into the yard where several people, including children, were standing. Investigator Steve Schlicht said in a press release that there was an argument going on in the yard, and that Roth was the parent to one of the people in an argument.
After she drove into the yard, she slammed on her breaks, but not before running over two bicycles and hitting an 11-year-old boy as the vehicle came to a hault.
She was arrested a short time later, when she was taken to the Harrison County Jail. Her bond was set at $50,000.
The child was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, and then later released.
