A woman will serve 120 days in jail for ramming a carload of people after they left a local night spot – with the incident happening in full view of a police officer.The defendant, Teresa Kate McInnis, 49, entered best-interest pleas this week before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to charges of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. She was ordered to serve 120 days of a four-year sentence, perform 40 hours public service work, pay $100 plus costs, and lose her driver license.McInnis was arrested after an incident at W.T.’s located off Manchester Highway. According to the victims in the case, there had been an altercation at the bar between McInnis and Joshua Cripps earlier in the evening.At some point Cripps, along with four others, left the bar and were heading down Manchester Highway when the vehicle driven by McInnis came from behind, traveled up beside them, and sideswiped their 2002 Nissan Maxima.“I stopped the vehicle at that time and she put her car into reverse and rammed me again, this time hitting the driver’s side door,” Cripps said in his felony warrant against McInnis.In addition to the stories of those in the Cripps vehicle, the ramming was also witnessed by a policeman who was on the same highway.
