A Springfield woman was charged with tampering with evidence, felonious assault, assault and theft during a child custody exchange around 1:45 p.m. Sunday at McDonald’s, 1127 N. Main St.
Officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department report Cheyenne J. McCants, 21, allegedly reached through the passenger window of Landon A. Sopher’s car and attempted to strike him after he put their 2-year-old daughter in rear seat and rolled up the rear passenger side window. She missed Sopher but struck the Marysville man’s wife, Kaylyn Sopher, who was seated in the front passenger seat. Kaylyn Sopher was recording the exchange on her cell phone and dropped it after she was struck.
McCants grabbed the phone from the car, fled to her vehicle and backed out of a parking space. Her vehicle light struck Kaylyn Sopher, who had exited her car to retrieve her phone.
McCants then drove to the Bellefontaine Police Department office and gave the phone to officers. She admitted to deleting a video of the exchange from the phone.
McCants was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
