Deputies: Odessa woman ran over fiancee with car

ODESSA — Pasco deputies on Sunday night found Heather Lynne Johnson's fiancee with scratches across his body and a disfigured left arm.

"She ran over me," he told them, according to a report. "She backed over me, and then drove over me again."

Johnson, 37, wouldn't talk to deputies at first, the report states, then she accused her fiancee of taking the keys to her Mitsubishi Eclipse so she wouldn't leave. "I want him arrested too!" she said.

Deputies charged her with domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

While in handcuffs, Johnson, a mortgage broker, kicked the door of a deputy's cruiser and hit her head on the window, the report states. On the way to the Land O'Lakes jail, she demanded to know more details.

"I want to know if you took him to the hospital," she told the deputy, according to the report. "He's my fiancee!"

Johnson, of 3741 Haven Drive in New Port Richey, remained in jail Monday without bail.
