Two Treasure Coast sisters were arrested Saturday after they allegedly beat and kicked in a car windshield of a woman who had honked at them in traffic.
Jena Elizabeth Legrone, 25, who lives in the 9100 block of Southeast Parkway Drive in Hobe Sound, and Paige Nicole Legrone, 23, who lives in the 2200 block of Southeast Maslan Avenue in Port St. Lucie, were each charged with assault, battery and burglary to a conveyance with battery, according to a Port St. Lucie police arrest affidavit. Paige Legrone was also charged with criminal mischief.
They were released from the St. Lucie County Jail on Saturday after Jena Legrone posted $31,125 in bond and Paige Legrone posted $31,875, records show.
A Port St. Lucie woman honked twice at the Legrone car when she saw it moving erratically behind her in traffic, according to the arrest affidavit.
When she slowed down in the middle lane of Southeast Veterans Memorial Parkway near U.S. 1, Paige Legrone pulled up beside her and Jena Legrone got out and began yelling racial slurs and hitting the woman, who was still in her seat belt, the affidavit said.
Paige Legrone, also screaming racial insults, punched the woman in the mouth, jumped on the hood of her car and kicked in her windshield, the affidavit said.
The woman suffered minor mouth injuries, police said.
