A 31-year-old woman charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder after running over another woman and her teenage son during an argument Sunday outside of Orlando Paintball was denied bond on Monday.
The argument started because Morrison didn’t want her ex-boyfriend to have their two children around another woman, according to her ex-boyfriend, Frankie D. Washington.
Witnesses saw Morrison yelling at Washington before arguing with a woman — later identified as Mary-Jo Wood — in the parking lot of Orlando Paintball at 7215 Rose Avenue about 5:30 p.m.
During the argument, Morrison allegedly sprayed Wood with pepper spray, according to Washington.
Morrison then ordered her two children — who are fathered by Washington — to get into her car.
That’s when Morrison got into her car, backed up, and then rammed into Wood and her son, pinning them against a wall, according to Washington.
Deputies said she reversed her vehicle and then ran into the teen boy a second time, pushing him into a nearby bench.
Wood, who said she had never met Morrison, told deputies she didn’t see when she was hit because her eyes were sore from the pepper spray. But she heard her son and other people screaming.
After the incident, Morrison drove away at a “high rate of speed,” according to Washington.
Once deputies found Morrison, she told them she sprayed the pepper spray in self-defense because a woman she doesn’t know tried to hit her with a metal “thing.”
She also said her glasses fell off her face while trying to leave the scene. So she was unable to see where she was going, according to an arrest report.
Wood and her son suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the incident.
