LAKE WYLIE — Security guards for Lake Wylie’s River Hills community told deputies a North Carolina woman who claimed to be using bath salts tried to run them over after she rammed her car into her boyfriend’s garage and Mercedes on Sunday.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Meagan Brooke Hart, 25, of Bessemer City and charged her with malicious injury to personal property and reckless driving, a York County Sheriff’s report shows.
Hart told police that her boyfriend invited her to the house to use bath salts, which are illegal. After using the drugs, Hart started questioning her boyfriend about him seeing other women.
She became enraged, the report states, and ransacked the house, tossing trash and throwing down a flat screen TV. She went to her car and drove through the closed garage door before backing into her boyfriend’s Mercedes and then driving through the garage door a second time, the report states.
Hart’s boyfriend admitted he invited her to the house but denied using bath salts. Everything was fine, he said, until Hart accused him of being with other women.
The security guards said when they went to the house, Hart tried to run them over with her car. They stopped her at gunpoint and had to force her out of the car.
It’s unclear if police found evidence of Hart actually using bath salts.
She was released Monday on a $10,445 bond.
