A Springfield man is accused of intentionally ramming his car into a pregnant woman’s car after chasing her, according to court records.

Jamaal Fleming, 37, of Springfield, was charged with felonious assault in Clark County Municipal Court on Wednesday, according to court documents. He pleaded not guilty to the charge and his bond was set at $26,000.

He was still listed as an inmate in the Clark County Jail on Wednesday afternoon.

According to an affidavit filed in the case, the woman Fleming allegedly hit was driving to Horace Mann School to pick up her children with a passenger when she saw Fleming driving a silver Nissan Altima or Maxima.

“(The passenger) stated that the silver Nissan followed behind them onto Lowman St. (The passenger) stated that they continued onto Reames Ave. and the silver Nissan continued to follow them at a high speed,” the affidavit says.

The woman continued driving onto Dorothy Layne Avenue toward S. Fostoria Avenue when Fleming allegedly hit her, the affidavit said.

“Mr. Fleming then rammed the rear of (the woman’s) vehicle, and then swerved around her vehicle stopping in front of her,” the affidavit says.

The woman then put her car in reverse and drove backward on South Fostoria Avenue toward Mount Joy Street, the affidavit said.

“As (the woman) attempted to turn her car around to get from Mr. Fleming, Mr. Fleming put his vehicle in reverse, smashing into the driver side of her vehicle, causing significant damage,” the affidavit says.

The woman continued driving away from Fleming, who continued to follow her, according to the affidavit, until the two cars were on East Main Street next to Walgreens.

“(The passenger) stated that Mr. Fleming then exited his vehicle and came up to the driver’s side of (the woman’s) vehicle. Mr. Fleming then grabbed the driver’s side door frame and bent the frame down,” according to the affidavit.

The woman took off, and Fleming did not follow her, the affidavit says.

The woman, who is three months pregnant, drove to a pawn shop where she called for a medic and was transported to Springfield Regional Medical Center where she was treated stomach and head pain, according to the affidavit.

The next court date in the case has not been set.
