Baton Rouge Police arrested a woman accused of trying to run over her fiancé with a car early Tuesday morning while their one-year-old child sat in the car with her.
The incident began when Mictissa A. Moseley, 24, was arguing with her fiancé, both of whom are active-duty military police officers, while they were driving in the 2500 block of Evangeline Street, according to an affidavit of probable cause. Moseley started punching the victim as he drove, and the man ultimately jumped out of the car and tried to call a ride.
But while that happened, Moseley took over the wheel and tried to run over her fiancé, the affidavit says. The man jumped out of the way, and Moseley ran the car into a tree.
Moseley later told police “she was trying to kill the victim and the only thing she did wrong was not remove the infant from the vehicle,” the affidavit says.
Moseley, of 2436 Elm Park Drive, Baton Rouge, was booked Tuesday into Parish Prison on counts of attempted second-degree murder and cruelty to a juvenile.
