Witnesses said the husband honked and the Bentley's driver got out of his car. The victim got out of her vehicle and a shouting match ensued. According to police reports, the 20-year-old and the 15-year-old then got out of the Bentley and attacked the woman.
The woman was bleeding and suffered minor injuries but did not require hospitalization.
A police report says the victim's husband and other witnesses were unable to help the victim because Eddye Lovely claimed to have a firearm, though one was never displayed.
Police statements were given by witnesses who supplied both descriptions and cell phone photographs of the Bentley and its license plate. Bail was set for Eddye and Brenden Lovely at $6,500 and $5,000 respectively.
