20-year-old woman facing 3 felony assault charges for allegedly ramming car


A 20-year-old Lincoln woman faces three felony assault charges on allegations that she rammed an occupied car with an SUV early Monday, pushing it through red lights until both vehicles were disabled.

Mariah Kerr remained in jail Tuesday on a $50,000 bond.

If convicted of the second-degree assault charges, she could get up to 20 years in prison on each.

According to court records, a 911 call came in shortly before 2:30 a.m. Monday sending police to the area of 52nd Street and Huntington Avenue about a Chevy Trailblazer ramming a Chevy Impala.

Police said Kerr was upset about her girlfriend riding around with an ex and chased them down, driving at speeds of more than 90 mph and ramming the back of the car three times.

Police said it appeared both vehicles were totaled and the three people in the Impala, two 24-year-old women and a 14-year-old boy, each complained of injuries.

After the vehicles stopped, the women told investigators Kerr assaulted them, pulling one out of the car by her hair and punching both, according to the affidavit.

Kerr denied she rammed the car and said they collided when the car braked hard, police said.
