Fight over man ends in arrest

An argument over a man ended with the arrest of a 22-year-old woman for aggressive driving.

Officers from the Covington Police were called to the area of Washington and West streets where Tiffany Neal was pulled over. Officers stopped her after another woman called 911 saying that Neal had tried to harm her.

According to the victim, she and Neal had been arguing for the last two weeks because they are both involved with the same man, and things had come to a head when she confronted Neal about that man.

She said that she and two friends had been leaving Lunsford Circle around 2:30 a.m. when they noticed Neal was following them in her car, with her front bumper inches from the rear bumper of their vehicle. The victim told the officer "she was fearful Neal was trying to harm her."

At one point, Neal pulled next to the victim's car and allegedly threw a bottle of Jasmine Blunt Spray at her, yelling profanities and saying "you are going to jail with your daughter." She then sped away toward Washington Street. The officer noticed fresh skid marks on the street where the victim alleged Neal spun her car around.

After the other witnesses reiterated the victim's version of events, officers took the victim to where Neal was pulled over. Neal reportedly admitted that she and the victim had been arguing the past two weeks over the same man. She also said the victim stopped her car in the middle of Washington Street and struck her car with her fist, although officer's noted there were no marks on her vehicle.

Neal was placed under arrest and transported to the Newton County Detention Center where she was charged with aggressive driving.
