Woman accused of hitting ex-boyfriend in South Bend with her car

A breakup turns violent as a woman allegedly hit her ex-boyfriend with a car.

South Bend police say it happened last Tuesday at a home on Blaine Road. The ex-boyfriend of Shaylyn Bush spotted his former flame at the house and the two got into an argument.

As he stood in the street, Bush allegedly drove forward, hitting her former beau and breaking her windshield in the process. She stopped suddenly, causing the victim to be thrown onto the road. Bush then took off.

Bush later called police, claiming her boyfriend jumped on the hood of her vehicle, then broke her phone and ripped off her watch during the incident. Court documents say she then claimed to not know why her windshield was broken.

She’s charged with a single count of criminal recklessness.
