Girl hit by car, twice

EAST LIVERPOOL – A Hubbard woman was charged Sunday by city police for underage drinking and a weapons violation following an incident in which a teenage girl was reportedly struck twice by the woman’s vehicle.

Teja T. Isleman, 18, was charged with prohibitions, carrying a concealed weapon, reckless operation and leaving the scene of an accident, with other charges possibly pending.

Police said they received a call from a female saying she had been “jumped” on Erie Street, with Patrolman Steve Adkins arriving to find another woman and a 14-year-old girl had been in a fight.

The other adult, who was not charged, reportedly dragged the teenager by her hair into a car being driven by Isleman, who decided to drive off. The other woman then shoved the teenage girl from the car, causing her to be struck by the vehicle, according to police.

Isleman and the other woman drove off, striking a car, then returned, striking the teenage girl again before striking a second car, leaving behind the bumper of Isleman’s vehicle.

Captain Terry Faulkner was able to locate Isleman’s vehicle and, during her questioning and a search, found she had a lockblade knife in her bra, according to officers.

The girl was taken to East Liverpool City Hospital for minor injuries that included road rash and scrapes, and police said it is possible additional charges will be filed in regard to that aspect of the alleged incident.

Isleman was transported to the county jail.
