A woman was arrested and charged with aggravated battery after intentionally striking her ex-boyfriend with her vehicle.
On April 9, the Coconut Creek Police Department responded to a domestic violence call near the 1900 block of Lyons Road. When officers arrived, a victim reported he and a woman, later identified as Teja Andrayah Heath, 21, of North Lauderdale, had a verbal dispute surrounding alleged infidelity.
According to the police report, upon interview, Heath immediately admitted to officers that she had egged and keyed the victim’s car before entering his apartment and confronting him.
The report says witnesses told police the argument escalated, and Heath got into her 2016 Maroon Nissan Altima and intentionally struck the victim with her car before crashing into a nearby tree.
Records indicate the victim suffered great bodily harm from the incident and expressed a desire to prosecute for damages to his vehicle, which was covered in eggs.
According to the report, Heath told officers that she did not strike the victim intentionally, but based on her actions leading up to the incident, officers determined that there was probable cause that she committed aggravated battery.
Heath was taken into custody and transferred to the Broward County Main Jail.
