Amanda D. Frost, 31, of 113 1/2 N. Park St., Bellefontaine, was charged with domestic violence, endangering children and negligent assault related to an incident Thursday afternoon at 1474 County Road 1, Bellefontaine.
Deputies were dispatched to the home about 4:15 p.m. on a report of an unruly juvenile complaint called in by Frost. She initially reported her 11-year-old son was not listening to her when she was attempting to leave the residence. Then Frost called dispatchers again and advised everything was “OK.”
However, when deputies arrived at the home, they observed Frost’s mother, Tammy Devine, 51, limping. Devine told deputies that she and her daughter were arguing regarding her 11-year-old grandson with the vehicle door open. Frost then began backing up the vehicle and caused the car door to strike Devine in the right leg.
Devine told deputies she heard a loud “popping” sound when the door hit her leg. She was transported by private vehicle to Mary Rutan Hospital.
Frost said she did not intentionally hurt her mother, but she was aware that her mother was standing in the open doorway of the vehicle. She was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
