HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Two women were arrested after getting into a fight at Socastee Elementary Tuesday morning; during the fight, one woman drove over another woman's foot after she refused to get out of the way of the vehicle, according to the police report.

Stephanie Redmond, 34, and April Ridgeway, 29, were both arrested and taken to J. Reuben Long Detention Center after Horry County Police responded to a call about a fight at the school. Redmond was later charged with disturbing schools.

Witnesses at the school told police that Redmond shouted at Ridgeway to slow down, as she was driving towards a crosswalk, according to the police report. Ridgeway got out of the car and the two women walked towards each other.

The women then began loudly cursing at and pushing each other, witnesses said. After a school employee warned them to stop, Ridgeway got back into her vehicle, and Redmond stepped in front of it.

Ridgeway tried to drive around Redmond several times, according to the report, but drove over Redmond's foot, the report states. Witnesses said that Redmond repeatedly stepped into Ridgeway's path.

Although Redmond refused medical attention several times, she was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution, and was discharged, according to the report.

Both women were taken to J. Reuben Long Detention Center. The judge did not find probable cause to charge Ridgeway, citing the fact that Redmond willfully put herself in harm's way, and there was no proof Ridgeway had malicious intent.

Redmond was charged with disturbing schools, issued a no trespass warning from the principal, and it was noted that she had a history of being confrontational with the staff, the report states.
