School Board Member Allegedly Rams Teen With Her Car In Fight Over Walmart Parking Space

A school board member in Georgia was arrested after allegedly hitting a 17-year-old with her SUV in a dispute over a parking space at Walmart, according to WBSTV.

WBSTV reported the teen girl was standing in a parking spot to hold it for a friend who had just given birth when Angela Cornett told her to move. 

The teen told police she refused and then, Cornett allegedly hit her with the car. Cornett’s side of the story is that the girl leaned into her car. 

The teen didn’t have any serious injuries, just a few cuts and scrapes. 

Cornett was taken to jail and charged with misdemeanour reckless conduct. She also resigned from her school board post. 

Here’s a video that shows security footage from the incident:
