A 21-year-old wo­man had to be re­strained by a New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice deputy Wed­nes­day af­ter the wo­man fol­lowed a man from Cony­ers be­fore strik­ing him re­peat­edly.

Last Wed­nes­day, New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Deputy Beau Alexan­der opened his front door to find his next door neigh­bor be­ing as­saulted by a black fe­male. Alexan­der re­port­edly iden­ti­fied him­self as a deputy and told the wo­man to stop.

The vic­tim ad­vised the fe­male, Alexis Du­mas, be­gan chas­ing him af­ter she spit in his face while stopped on Ge­or­gia 20 near Honey Creek in Cony­ers. Dur­ing the chase, Du­mas re­port­edly at­tempted to run him off the road, ran over a stop sign and then struck his ve­hi­cle with her own.

Alexan­der iden­ti­fied him­self again as an of­fi­cer and told Du­mas again to stop. She re­port­edly told Alexan­der she did not care who he was and again be­gan to hit the man. Alexan­der had to phys­i­cally re­strain Du­mas to pre­vent her from hit­ting the vic­tim again.

NCSO Lt. Bill Wat­ter­son said Du­mas also screamed sev­eral racially mo­ti­vated state­ments in the di­rec­tion of the vic­tim dur­ing the ex­change.

Du­mas was ar­rested on ag­gra­vated as­sault, bat­tery, ob­struc­tion of an of­fi­cer and vi­o­la­tion of li­cense re­stric­tions.
