A southwest Iowa woman faces numerous charges after she rammed her own house in Montgomery County and nearly ran down a Sheriff’s deputy on Thursday night. According to Sheriff Tony Updegrove, 33-year-old Jennifer W. Clark was arrested following an incident that occurred in rural Stanton.
Updegrove says a domestic quarrel that began earlier in the evening between Clark and her husband Anthony, escalated to the point where she got into a car and drove around her yard erratically and rammed the house twice. When a Sheriff’s Deputy arrived, he ordered Clark to stop, but she allegedly drove toward him. The Deputy stepped aside and Clark hit the house a third time, which resulted in the vehicle being disabled.
The woman was apprehended by the Deputy with the assistance of an off-duty Iowa State Patrol Trooper. Clark was taken to the Adams County Jail and booked on charges that include assault with injury, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, interference with official acts, assault on a peace officer with a dangerous weapon, and reckless driving. Her bond has been set at nearly 40-thousand dollars.
