A Springfield woman was arrested on Friday after she allegedly tried to run her boyfriend over with her car several times and slammed him off of the hood, according to a police report.

Mandi Caudill, 35, of Springfield, was charged with domestic violence on Friday. She was set to appear in the Clark County Municipal Court on Monday morning.

Caudill and her boyfriend were arguing earlier in the day and he later told her he was leaving their home, according to a police report. She later found him near a friend’s house in the 600 block of East Southern Avenue at about 11:30 p.m Friday. After another argument, she drove up on the curb into the grass and struck him, but didn’t injure him, according to the report. As he began to walk away, she again tried to hit him with the vehicle, the report said.

The boyfriend then jumped on to the hood of the car because he feared for his safety, the report says. Caudill then allegedly drove into the roadway and slammed on the brakes, causing the man to fly off of the hood and onto the pavement. The man suffered road rash to his left arm and injured his left hip.

Caudill was later arrested at a home in the 1100 block of Tibbets Avenue.
