BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A woman is facing felony charges after a domestic incident in Bossier City Sunday morning in which one person was struck by her car before police say she led them on a brief chase.

It all started around 9:22 a.m., when police got a call from a man reporting that his estranged wife had broken out the windows at his home in the Red Bird Mobile Home Park on Rossie Lee Drive and confronted him.

Before officers could get there, they say Ashley Kennedy returned to her car and ran into the front steps of the home where her ex was sitting on the phone with police. He was not injured, but when she put the car in reverse and accelerated, police say she struck the man's uncle standing in the yard.

He was taken to Willis Knighton Bossier, but he is expected to be ok.

Patrol officers then tried to stop Kennedy in Airline Drive, but they say she refused to stop, leading to a short pursuit.

When Kennedy finally stopped on Airline and Old Minden, police say she left the car in drive when she got out. The car rolled forward and struck an unoccupied patrol unit.

BCPD Sgt. Bart Cavanaugh says Kennedy was arrested and charged with 2 counts of aggravated battery, domestic, as well as 1 count of aggravated obstruction of a public roadway.

More charges could be filed. The investigation is ongoing.
