According to the RPD report, police responded Tuesday to a report of a disturbance in the 400 block of Smith Village. Upon arrival, officers met a woman who said she was visiting a resident when she observed a woman in another vehicle stop behind her and begin taking pictures of her car.

The victim went to investigate and observed the other woman using a phone to take photos of her as well. When the victim confronted her, the suspect drove away, running over the victim’s foot, the report stated. The victim was treated at Baptist Health for a broken toe and foot abrasions.

Burns was later identified as the driver of the vehicle based on the victim’s description of the vehicle, the report stated. She was interviewed at the police station, after which she was charged and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
