The mother of a 12 year old spent the night in jail after deputies say she rammed her husband's vehicle in the school parking lot.
Carteret County deputies say Kari Edwards showed up Monday afternoon at Broad Creek Middle School in Newport, apparently thinking her husband was trying to pick up their son. The woman thought the child was already in the pickup truck, so she tried to disable the vehicle so it couldn't drive away, according to a news release. The Sheriff's Office says the couple is currently separated.
The child was actually standing outside and deputies say he saw the entire thing, along with an off-duty deputy sheriff.
The 46-year-old mother is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with a minor present, aggressive driving and injury to property.
Edwards went before a district judge this morning and posted a $10,000 bond. A condition of her release is that Edwards have no contact with her estranged husband.
