NC police arrest woman in brazen hit-run caught on camera

WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Police have arrested a North Carolina woman who was seen on video in what appeared to be a vicious hit-and-run against a woman who was walking with her ex-boyfriend

Police say Courtnay Danielle Lawrence, 21, was the driver who was trying to strike the father of her four children but instead slammed into a woman walking next to him as he jumped out of the way. The woman was left with significant injuries.

Investigators say Lawrence later posted a selfie on social media posing with the damaged car just after the crash.

Lawrence made her first court appearance Wednesday.
