A Stowmarket woman allegedly used her car as a weapon and drove it at a woman during an argument, a court has heard.
Tia Billman was seen by shocked residents of Hill Rise, Stowmarket to drive her silver MG down the road at speed and hit two cars before becoming wedged between another car and some steps, Ipswich Crown Court was told.
“Her driving was so atrocious it was dangerous driving,” alleged Jamie Sawyer, prosecuting.
Billman, 29, of Gainsborough Road, Stowmarket, has denied dangerous driving in Hill Rise, Stowmarket, on July 9 2016 and possessing a metal bar.
Following her arrest Billman admitted being involved in an incident in Hill Rise and claimed she had crashed her car because she was being attacked and that her actions were in self-defence. She denied brandishing a metal bar but admitted keeping one in her car for protection.
