January 2, 2019

A Georgetown woman faces felony charges after police say she tried to run over another woman four times, striking a Harbeson home and parked car during the process.

Rachel J. Holland, 34, went to a home at 8 p.m. Dec. 31 in the 28000 block of Harmon Drive where she argued with a woman, 40, said Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe of the Delaware State Police.

When the victim asked Holland to leave, Jaffe said, Holland got into her car and tried to run the woman over. Holland missed, and struck the home. She then tried a second time to strike the victim and again struck the house, Jaffe said. Holland tried a third and fourth time to run over the woman, but she hit a parked car before driving away, Jaffe said.

Police found Holland in her vehicle, stuck in a ditch a short distance from where the incident occurred, Jaffe said.

Holland was taken into custody without incident and charged with four counts of felony first-degree reckless endangering. She was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $10,000 secured bond.
