Following fight in moving vehicle, police arrest couple
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A Bowling Green woman is accused of endangering her child after police said she was engaged in a physical fight in a moving vehicle on the interstate.
Tiffany Lasha Pittman, 26, was charged Wednesday with endangering the welfare of a minor, second-degree wanton endangerment and fourth-degree assault domestic violence.
A Kentucky State Police trooper wrote in her citation that he saw her vehicle leave the road and exit into a grassy ditch on the right side of Interstate 165 northbound near Mile Marker 3.
When the vehicle came to a complete stop, Pittman and a man, Jacob Miller, 39, exited the vehicle and physically fought each other, according to her arrest citation.
She told the trooper she was operating the car during the fight, according to her citation.
She said Miller did not assault her even though the trooper said he saw Miller strike Pittman and grab her in an aggressive manner.
Pittman told police the two had an argument because the man did not want her to drive because she was having a panic attack and hallucinations. She said Miller didn’t hit her but was instead restraining her, according to her citation.
Pittman’s six-year-old son was in the car at the time of the incident, according to the citation.
Miller was charged with fourth-degree assault domestic violence.
