ARKANSAS CITY — An Arkansas City woman was arrested after allegedly trying to run over an Ark City man during an incident early Wednesday morning in southeast Ark City.

Kristy Kaye Sodowsky, 42, was arrested by the Arkansas City Police Department on suspicion of aggravated assault, battery-domestic violence, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.

She was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in Winfield in lieu of $14,000 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City.

Sodowsky remained in custody at the time of this release.

Police responded shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday to the intersection of Adams Avenue and B Street for a report of a female trying to run over a male with her vehicle. She fled the area prior to their arrival.

The 42-year-old male victim reported the incident started as domestic violence at his residence.

The victim then left the residence on a bicycle. When he reached the 300 block of East Adams Avenue, Sodowsky caught up in a minivan. A verbal and physical altercation ensued.

The victim then rode his bicycle across the street and onto the sidewalk.

Sodowsky allegedly backed her vehicle up and began to accelerate toward the victim in the 300 block of South B Street. She drove onto the sidewalk toward where the victim had jumped off his bicycle.
He stepped out of the way as she drove a short distance down the sidewalk.

A defendant’s guilt or innocence is to be determined by a court of law.
