RICHMOND — Richmond police charged Christie R. Burns, 40, of Maple Street, Berea, on Wednesday with second-degree assault after she reportedly drove over another woman’s foot.

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.

About 6 p.m., officers arrived at the BP station on Four Mile Road and identified Deckert as the party involved. When asked for identification, Deckert supplied someone else’s license and claimed it was hers, the report stated.

Officers said they later determined her true identity, and she was lodged in the detention center, where she remained Thursday evening according to the jail’s online records.

Deckert was additionally served two warrants for contempt of court and a warrant for failure to pay child support.
