Troopers Say Woman Tried To Run Over Victim Four Times On New Years Eve

Harbeson- The Delaware State Police have arrested a Georgetown woman on multiple counts of reckless endangering after a domestic incident, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on December 31, 2018, at approximately 8:00 p.m., when Troopers were dispatched to the 28000 block of Harmon Drive for a report of a domestic in which a vehicle had struck a house. Upon arrival, it was learned that the victim, a 40-year-old female had engaged in an argument with 34-year-old Rachel J. Holland.

The victim asked Holland to leave her residence. Holland then got in her vehicle and attempted to run over the victim who was standing between the vehicle and her house, according to Jaffe. Holland missed striking the victim, however, she struck the residence. Holland attempted a second time to strike the victim and again struck the house, said Jaffe. Holland made two more attempts to run over the victim, hitting a parked car both times, according to Jaffe. Holland fled the scene but did not go far. Troopers located her vehicle, stuck in a ditch a short distance from where the incident occurred.

Holland was taken into custody without incident and transported back to the Troop where she was charged with four counts of Reckless Endangering First Degree (Felony). She was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $10,000.00 secured bond.
