A Bartow County school board member faces misdemeanor charges after deputies said she hit a teenager with her SUV during a dispute over a Walmart parking spot, Channel 2 Action News reports.

Deputies arrested Angela Cornett on Friday after the parking space altercation, according to Channel 2.

According to a police report, a 17-year-old girl stood in a parking spot at the Cartersville Walmart to hold it for a friend who had just given birth.

She didn’t want the friend to have to walk too far into the store. But when Cornett arrived in her SUV, deputies said she wanted the space too, and that led to a verbal disagreement.

“She told her to move and then she pulled into the parking spot and hit her with the tire of the vehicle,” said Bartow County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Jonathan White. “They did see scuff marks on the victim’s knee, which was consistent with the height of the tire during that incident.”

In the report Cornett claimed she told the teen to move and as she pulled into the space, the teen “leaned against her vehicle and started to yell, ‘She hit me.’” In the report, Cornett’s daughter corroborated her mother’s story, according to Channel 2.

But when deputies examined the Walmart security camera video, they told Channel 2 it showed “the SUV stops as (the teen) stands in the parking space and suddenly accelerates. (The teen) is struck by the vehicle, and she is physically moved by the force of the vehicle.”

Deputies charged Cornett with misdemeanor reckless conduct and took her to jail. She later bonded out.

The teen was not seriously injured, according to Channel 2.

The driver never should have hit her of course. BUT, the pedestrian was not an innocent in this situation.

Ffs. She was just trying to help her friend. And the woman's daughter lied for her mom. That's really sad.

 You know you THINK it (standing to block a parking space is BULL SHIT), but you don't DO IT. She's an idiot.

Good grief. People are nuts. So you have to walk a bit more. I hate parking towards the front. I am always far from the store.
