Pamela Willis, 29, 50 Hamil St., Gates, Tenn., is charged with two counts of aggravated assault and driving on a revoked license.
According to Dyersburg Police Capt. Mark Moody, on Saturday, March 22, around 3 p.m., police responded to a wreck at the intersection of Phillips Street and Hogwallow Road involving two vehicles. Once they arrived on the scene, officers discovered Willis had rammed her vehicle at a high rate of speed into another vehicle being driven by Kenneth Jobe. Also, inside Jobe's vehicle was his 10-year-old daughter. Willis reportedly pushed Jobe's vehicle from the roadway and into a large railroad crossing sign.
Moody said there were no injuries to anyone, but both vehicles were undriveable and had to be towed from the scene. Moody says Willis and Jobe had been dating and had been into a verbal argument. Willis was taken into custody at the scene and booked into the Dyer County Jail. Jobe was also arrested for having outstanding warrants from Lauderdale County. Family members of the child were called and she was released to them.
Willis appeared in Dyersburg City Court on Monday and remains in the Dyer County Jail without bond.
