TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A Tallahassee woman is accused of ramming her truck into her husband's SUV and getting into a physical altercation.

Heathyr Shaw, 31, was arrested Sunday morning on battery and aggravated assault charges.

At approximately 10 a.m. Sunday, Leon County Sheriff's deputies responded to the area of Southern Street and Capital Circle SW in reference to a physical fight in progress following a traffic crash.

According to arrest documents, the incident began on Sunday morning when Shaw's husband and his friend discovered that the valve stems of the friend's vehicle had been cut overnight. They later told deputies they believed Shaw was responsible, but decided to simply repair the damage themselves.

When they left the residence, they said they were waiting at a stop sign at Southern Street and Capital Circle SW when they saw Heathyr Shaw in a GMC Sierra pickup truck driving toward them.

Deputies say that's when Shaw crossed over into the eastbound lanes and intentionally rammed her vehicle into the front of the Chevrolet Trailblazer that the husband and friend were in.

Shaw allegedly then got out of her vehicle and headed toward the passenger seat where the friend was sitting. Shaw's husband got in between the two and Shaw allegedly punched him in the face 4 to 6 times. Deputies say Shaw was wrestled to the ground, then got back into her vehicle and drove away in the direction of the husband's residence.

Court documents say Shaw then rammed her pickup truck into the SUV a second time in an area near the husband's residence, while screaming out of the window of the vehicle.

Law enforcement responded to the scene and took Shaw into custody following an investigation.

Shaw was booked into the Leon County Jail on $11,000 bond. She bonded out on Monday afternoon.
