PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

A Paragould woman was arrested this weekend after an alleged road rage incident.

According to court documents, 24-year-old Ashley E. Williams ran someone off the road Sunday during a “road rage incident.”

Williams then got out of her car and attacked the other driver through his driver’s side window.

The victim sustained multiple injuries to his arms and hands, according to the affidavit.

Williams also reportedly tased the driver several times.

When the victim tried to dial 911, Williams grabbed his phone and threw it across the road.

The man then grabbed a second phone and tried to call the police, but Williams grabbed that phone and left the scene.

Williams is charged with felony robbery and a misdemeanor for theft of property.

Her bond was set at $100,000 and she was ordered to have no contact with the victim.
