A woman faces two felony charges of aggravated assault after she allegedly deliberately struck another car with her own at the intersection of Millcreek Drive and Walker Street at about 4:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon, June 28.
According to police reports, Shari Caras, 35, was arguing with the driver of a Toyota truck who was following a second woman who was on foot. A caller who lives in the neighborhood told investigators the man was trying to get the second woman into the vehicle when Caras, driving a white sedan, pulled up behind the truck and started yelling at both the man and the woman.
The man again resumed following the woman when Caras allegedly swerved in front of the truck and made contact with the right side of the truck. When they got to Walker Street both the man and woman exited their vehicles and began arguing.
They left the scene before police arrived but a Grand County deputy alerted Moab Police he located the Toyota at the Cinema Court Apartments in the 1000 block of Millcreek Drive. They contacted the man, who showed slight damage to his truck where the woman allegedly struck the vehicle.
The man was cagey when asked what his relationship was with Caras, according to police, who determined he had been in on-again, off-again relationships with both women for a number of years.
The officer eventually interviewed both women and determined Caras was allegedly the primary aggressor.
She faces a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving in addition to the felony assaults.
