Police say that Kathryn Vigil, a 30-year-old Foley woman, punched her boyfriend's three-year-old son yesterday and then ran over the man with her car.

And the woman's two children were inside the vehicle when she drove it into him, the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says.

"During their investigation, deputies determined the Foley residence was unlivable, and the children were residing in deplorable conditions," the sheriff's office says in a release.

The woman was taken into custody yesterday and is now facing a charge of felony domestic assault in the first degree. She's currently behind bars at the Lincoln County Jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.

Lincoln county cops were dispatched to the 100 block of Country Hill Estates in Foley yesterday and while they were in route, "emergency communications stated...Vigil ran over her boyfriend with her vehicle," police say.

The man told deputies that a physical altercation broke out when he saw his girlfriend punching his three-year-old son living in the home "with both hands." The report continues:

During the course of their argument, Vigil began throwing the household items at him causing the victim to leave the house for a neighbor's residence.

After several minutes, the victim returned home to remove his biological son.

The woman then put her own two children into her vehicle, cops say, and "attempted to drive to the neighbor's residence." The boyfriend told cops that he stood in front of the car to stop her, but that she "used the vehicle to nudge him several times and eventually struck him hard enough to cause him to fall."

The man was able to get away and remove the keys from the car, cops say.

After an investigation, deputies took the children into protective custody. The Division of Social Services has placed the three in foster care.

The boyfriend, police say, refused medical attention and did not appear to be suffering from any major injuries.

What is going on with some of the people (and I use that term loosely) that reside in Lincoln county? I have been familiar with that area since around the early 1950's and used to be quite the bucolic pastoral place. And yes it did very sledom have it's "Otis". However, now it seems Pedophiles, druggies, murderers and the rest of criminal have all taken up habitation amongst what used to be farms of generations of long standing.

I got a bullshit ticket for DWB (Driving-While-Black) there earlier this year. Before that, I'd never heard of the place. So the only two things I know about the place are bad.

Hmm...her bright red face might clash with prison orange. She might want to tone it down a bit.

If you read the article, she tried to drive away, and the guy stood in front of her car. She nudged him a couple of times with the car, and he still wouldn't move. So who's more stupid: her for running him over or him for failing to get out of the way of the car when he could have done so.

I'm reminded of an old Rodney Carrington joke: "Them f---ers are so redneck they can't even close their mouths when they talk."
