On 8 Jul 08 Lauren Rummer, age 18, 135 Vanfossen Road, Lowell, reported she was traveling northbound on Cats Creek Road when the driver of a two door Buick accelerated up from behind her vehicle. The driver, whom she recognized as Rebecca Sergent, age 18, 1320 Caywood Road, Marietta, pulled up next to her and swerved her vehicle in attempt to force her off the road. Ms. Sergent then swerved and braked abruptly, forcing Ms. Rummer to skid to a stop. At that point Ms. Sergent exited her vehicle and began banging on the driver’s side window of Ms. Rummer’s car and shouting obscenities. Ms. Rummer escaped without harm and phoned for help from her residence. Even though Ms. Sergent asserted she was not in the vicinity of the incident, Deputy Sheriff Staats located skid marks on the roadway consistent with Ms. Rummer’s statement. In consequence, Deputy Staats requested a summons for Ms. Sergent for aggravated menacing.
