Chattanooga woman charged over attack with car

A woman accused of attacking another woman and her son with a car Saturday has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault, according to a Chattanooga police arrest report.

Shanese Johnson, 22, was arrested Tuesday after her neighbor, Jennifer Hodge, told police that Johnson hit her and Hodge’s 15-year-old son while they were in their front yard at 7773 Basswood Drive.

Hodge reported that she and Johnson had been in an argument, and that Johnson got in her car and “slammed on the gas.” Hodge said she and her son both were struck and ended up on the car’s hood.

The report stated that Hodge and her son were observed by a police medic, but no major injuries were reported.
