Blotter: Woman accuses husband’s ex-girlfriend of assault

A 60-year-old woman was arrested Monday afternoon on three outstanding Johnson County warrants after her ex-boyfriend’s wife told police the woman tried to hit her with a vehicle in the 300 block of West Eagle Drive.

Police later stopped the suspect’s vehicle and collected evidence and verbal statements, according to the police report. The victim was not injured in the incident, police said.

The suspect later was arrested on three misdemeanor warrants: a violation of a promise to appear, driving with an invalid license and speeding.
