— Rock Hill police arrested a woman last week after a witness told an officer she hit another woman with her Kia SUV in a parking lot while driving intoxicated.

Regina Griggs, 50, of Rock Hill is accused of intentionally injuring a 33-year-old woman on Feb. 11 when she struck her with her vehicle and knocked her against a building, according to a Rock Hill police report released Monday.

The victim was taken to the hospital with injuries to her arm, leg and head, the report states.

When an officer arrived at the scene around 3:30 p.m. last Tuesday, the report states that they found Griggs “unsteady on her feet,” with bloodshot eyes and she was slurring her words. She was arrested after failing to follow the officer’s direction during a field sobriety test.

At the Rock Hill city jail, Griggs refused to provide a breath sample for officers to determine her blood alcohol content, according to the report. Officers issued a notice of suspension for Griggs’ driver’s license, but she refused to sign the paperwork, the report states.

Griggs was charged with driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license, according to Rock Hill police documents.

Through an investigation, Rock Hill police determined that Griggs knew the woman she hit with her vehicle. The victim and the witness told police that they believe Griggs hit the victim intentionally.
