A wheelchair was damaged Tuesday when a woman got into an altercation with a driver. The woman was visiting her mother from out of town and was using the mother's wheelchair to carry trash to the street. At that time, she noticed a couple arguing, the woman from a car and the man from the street. She asked them to stop because there were elderly people in the area and got into a fight with the suspect, who was driving the car. The victim was standing next to a dumpster during the argument, and the suspect attempted to hit her with the car. She missed both people but hit the dumpster and the wheelchair. Officers did not apprehend the driver, but they did get her license plate number from the man. The owners of the wheelchair want to press charges for the damage.
