BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Caught on camera-- an argument ends with one woman behind bars, and two men in the hospital. Officers say the driver did it on purpose after an argument quickly got out of hand.

Tiffany Thomas was able to record the car running over  three men. "Creeping up on them. And to see how you can just plow a person's body down, and have no care."

Officers arrested 24 year old Violet Moore Monday afternoon. They say she was arguing with three men, and used the car as a weapon to end the dispute.

Something Thomas just can't understand. "But you don't do that. I don't believe in guns like that or knives like that. But a car? You were already disturbing the public. That was bad enough. I prayed to God the whole time that day."

Broken pieces of wood are all that's left after Thomas says she saw the woman drive her car up over the curb, striking one of the men so hard, he flew into this fence.

"You see it sometimes on TV, but just to see that! And to see the young man."

Two of the three men were taken to Bainbridge Memorial, while one walked away with minor scratches and bruises.

"One was unconscious and being back-boarded and transported when I arrived on scene. Another one was in the ambulance, but under his own power, with a leg injury," said Eric Miller, Bainbridge Public Safety Director.

Both men have been released from the hospital. Moore is now charged with three counts of aggravated assault and two counts of criminal damage to property.
