Female road rage suspect arrested
Altercation broken up by off-duty deputy
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.
