ROCKLAND, Maine — Two charges filed against a Rockland woman accused of using her car as a weapon were dropped Wednesday.
The district attorney’s office dismissed aggravated assault and reckless conduct with a weapon charges against 24-year-old Jessica Kelley during a hearing in Knox County Superior Court. The prosecutor said witness statements did not support the charges.
Kelley was fined for driving to endanger in connection with the incident that occurred Nov. 7.
Police initially reported that when they responded to a domestic dispute on Fulton Street a man had gotten on top of the hood of a car and dared Kelley to drive off. She sped off for about 100 feet on Fulton Street and then slammed on the brakes, causing the man to be thrown to the pavement, police said.
The man was not injured to the extent that he needed to go to the hospital.
