NORTH AUGUSTA -- Police have charged a North Augusta man with assault and battery with intent to kill after a woman said he tried to run her down with his car.

 The bleeding woman, who was found walking along Hammonds Ferry Road about 5 a.m. Saturday, told police she'd been hit by a car near the  water treatment plant.

 During the altercation, the woman -- who did not have an address -- said she ended up on the hood of a 1997 Chrysler sedan driven by Robert Michael Johnson, 29, a police report said.

 With her holding onto the windshield wipers, Johnson slammed on brakes and threw the victim to the pavement, causing her to lose consciousness, the report said.

 She and Johnson knew each other, according to the report.

 Johnson was released from Aiken County Detention Center Saturday on a $5,000 bond, authorities said.

Remember there is always two

Remember there is always two sides to a story. Maybe she jumped on the hood of his car because he was trying to leave.

I thought about that WH, as soon as I had read the part about *during the altercation, she ended up on the hood*. Usually the LAST place you want to be, is on the hood of a vehicle that moves!
But they have to have had something on this, or he wouldn't have gotten booked..
But because he chose to slam on the brakes, he caused harm.

This raises alot of questions... and yes, there are always two sides to every story. How is it that he had time to get in his car, but she didn't have time to get off the hood? It also stated that she has no address. Hmmm... maybe someone didn't get paid?
