f you take nothing else away from this story, let it be that you shouldn't mess with a pregnant woman. Also, that you shouldn't use your car as a weapon, but somehow those two things are related.
With that said, if you've ever had your purse or wallet stolen, you know what an epic pain in the butt it can be. Not only are you out cash and your purse/wallet, you have to cancel your credit cards, call your bank, get a new license, etc. It's so incredibly inconvenient that it might just drive you to, well, drive over the person who took your stuff.
Just ask Christine Braswell, who is currently five months pregnant.
She says she walked out of Walmart to find a man, later identified as Robert Raines, going through the belongings in her SUV. Disconcerting, to say the least. Infuriating, to say the most.
Braswell says she tried to confront him, but he took off with her purse.
She tried to chase after him, but that wasn't working, so she got in her SUV and literally drove him down.
“I came back out here, and he was with my purse and took off,” she said. “I took off after him. Me being five months pregnant, I chased a little ways then came back, jumped in the car, threw it in gear and came across the curb and ran him over. I was not letting him get away with it. It’s not right. It’s not fair.”
Two witnesses helped Raines to the curb, where he was tended to by paramedics, and it's reported he suffered only minor injuries.
A witnesses backs up her story.
“When I walked out of Walmart he had her purse and was pulling all of her stuff out and me and my friend told him to put it down, what are you doing?” she said. “She stopped and he ran off and she came up behind him and hit him with the car.”
According to WBTV, Raines is being charged with breaking and entering, larceny, and damage to property.
Braswell is also being charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.
