A Buena Park woman was apprehended Friday after allegedly hitting her fiancé with her car twice before attempting to run over foot officers and leading a police chase down Pacific Coast Highway, officials said.
Maureen Geddie, 65, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run and driving under the influence of alcohol and was booked Friday into the Huntington Beach Jail, said Lt. Russell Reinhart in an e-mail.
Geddie allegedly had an argument with her fiancé about 7:45 p.m. Friday in the beach parking lot on Pacific Coast Highway and Sixth Street and got into a 2003 silver Ford Taurus.
She allegedly reversed the car into her 60-year-old fiancé, knocking him to the ground, and then accelerated a second time, hitting him again as he attempted to get up, Reinhart said.
Witnesses saw the incident and pulled the man out of the way while Geddie was allegedly attempting to hit him a third time.
