(BEDFORD) - A Bedford woman was arrested after she allegedly battered a man in a vehicle in the Walmart parking lot on March 31.

Lawrence County police arrested 46-year-old Beth Higginbotham of Bedford on charges of auto theft, theft and domestic battery.

According to Chief Deputy Aaron Shoults, officers were called to the home on Sheridan Drive at 1:45 p.m. after a man suffered a cut to his cheek from being hit with a closed fist.

"The victim reported being pushed by the suspect (Higginbotham) causing him pain from falling off a porch. She then took the victim's vehicle, a 2011 Ford Escape, without permission and left the residence."

Later that day Higginbotham returned to the home and the male called police.

"Officers went to the residence where the suspect was taken into custody and the vehicle was recovered and returned to the victim," Chief Deputy Shoults added.
