A Sandusky woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon for intentionally ramming her vehicle into another car in what appeared to be an act of retaliation, police said.

Nichole Walton, 25, 100 block W. Cowdery St., was charged with four counts of felonious assault.

On Monday, Walton was charged with a child restraint violation and marijuana possession after another woman — Seasons Cherry, 21 — reported Walton was driving without proper child safety equipment, according to a Sandusky police report. Also in Walton’s car at the time was the mother of the improperly restrained children, Amber McCarthy, 28.

At about 2 p.m. the following day, Cherry, two toddlers and Dale McCarthy, 26, were sitting in a vehicle in a Scott Street parking lot when Walton drove by, the report stated.

When Walton spotted the pair in the lot, she allegedly threw her vehicle in reverse and pulled inside. Smelling trouble, McCarthy tried to pull away — but Walton accelerated and rammed her car into theirs, the report said.

Walton then allegedly exited her car, yelling at Cherry for calling police on her the previous day.

When Cherry told Walton she was again dialing police, Walton got back in her car and drove off, the report said.

Cherry said she and Walton have had ongoing problems, citing instances in which Walton has showed up at her job and tried to start fights, the report said.

Walton later turned herself in at the Sandusky police station. At first, Walton said she accidentally struck McCarthy’s vehicle while pulling into the lot. She later changed her story, saying she’d stopped her car to confront Cherry about the previous day’s police call and unintentionally struck it at that point, the report said.

Prosecutors authorized four assault charges — one for each of the passengers.

Walton is being held at the Erie County jail on $80,000 bond.

I am suprised that Mr. Westerhold and the register is not defending this woman and supporting her like they do most criminals.

Name one criminal (besides Obama) they have supported? They are usually very fair across the board.

Geez Nichole! When I read about your other problem with the SPD I kind of thought the "fellow driver" wasn't really a "fellow driver".

Hell hath no fury... How does that go? But that ain't no excuse! It's not winning you any points.

She should have waited to get a towel around that head before her mugshot !!! Or maybe it was just really windy at that time

JMOP

Typical mellow behavior for a stoned-out, brain dead pothead…

You are the one with improper child restraint , and weed in your vehicle, instead of learning from your mistakes, you blame the one that reported you. You could have had a worse outcome before, now it really is worse, learn from your mistakes, be a better ,responsible person.

YoMamma

Seasons Cherry probably works at the Tea House!

DickTracey

I believe her dad was, Poppa Cherry.

Is Sandusky the drug capitol of erie county now? it sure looks like it when I read the police blotters. What Happened?

O Really

I think it's an even race for a lot of communities. Seems every town is being taken over by drugs. Pick a town, they all have some sort of epidemic. Some it's crack, some heroin & then there are the pill heads.
