A 42-year-old Boca Raton woman is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after being accused of ramming a scooter with her SUV on Monday, according to Lighthouse Point Police.
Tina Marie Brown got into an argument with L.W. Bedinotti III in the parking lot of a Publix supermarket on the 2400 block of N. Federal Highway, Commander Michael Oh said.
“He was driving through the parking lot with his wife on the back of his scooter and at some point [Brown] was crossing the parking lot and she felt that he drove a little too close to her and that started an argument,” Oh said.
Bedinotti’s wife went into Publix and while he waited outside Brown drove up and bumped the front of his scooter with her vehicle. She continued to push his scooter backward with the front of her SUV so he turned and drove past Brown to get out of harm’s way, Oh said.
The whole incident was recorded by a surveillance camera. Police arrested Brown. Bedinotti was treated for back injuries and released from the hospital.
