Bradenton woman charged with running over boyfriend

MANATEE -- A woman is out of jail on bond after she allegedly ran over her boyfriend with her car on New Year's Day, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Brittany McCullough and the man, who live together in the 5000 block of 20th Street East, Bradenton, had gotten into an argument about 2:30 a.m. Saturday over whether McCullough would pick up her daughter from the child's father.

McCullough and the man gave conflicting accounts of what happened, with the man saying she intentionally ran over him but McCullough said it was only an accident, according to the sheriff's office.

About nine hours after the accident, McCullough took the man to Manatee Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries to his face and knee.

A nurse called the sheriff's office to report that there had been a domestic incident with injuries.

McCullough was released from jail Sunday after posting a $5,000 bond. She is charged with aggravated domestic battery.
