LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. (AP) - A 64-year-old Florida woman faces aggravated assault charges after deputies say she hit her daughter and son-in-law with her car.

Lee County Sheriff’s deputies tell local news outlets that on Tuesday Lisa Newsome yelled, “I’m going to run him over,” referring to her 41-year-old son-in-law Walther Gilbert. She then aimed the car at the couple and hit them, pinning her daughter, 33-year-old Prussia Gilbert.

The News-Press (https://newspr.es/2il6KcV ) reports Prussia Gilbert is in critical condition at a Fort Myers hospital.

Walther Gilbert told investigators that his wife told him she was going to a party with her mother and he was pleading with her not to go. That’s when Newsome drove toward them.

She remains in jail on a $110,000 bond. Records don’t say whether she’s hired a lawyer.
