LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln woman has been sentenced to 180 days in jail and two years of probation for using her car to hit a pedestrian following a dispute over a parking spot.

The Lincoln Star Journal (https://bit.ly/1HZnbg6 ) reports 36-year-old Kimberly Pankratius was sentenced Thursday. She had pleaded no contest to attempting to leave the scene of an injury accident, third-degree assault and willful reckless driving.

Prosecutors say Pankratius was waiting for a parking spot outside a Wal-Mart when she yelled at a couple for taking the space as they walked to the store. Authorities say Pankratius struck the 40-year-old woman in the arm with the side mirror of her vehicle, leaving the mirror dangling.

Pankratius was also fined $500 and had her license revoked for 60 days.
