- An outraged 39-year-old driver was arrested this week after she pursued a teenage driver and bit her when she parked at her Georgia school, sheriff's office deputies said.

Jennifer Stegall Edge was angry because she believed the 17-year-old girl had cut her off in traffic, Newton County Sheriff Sgt. Cortney Morrison told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Friday.

A magistrate released Edge from jail on her own recognizance Thursday. She was charged with aggravated assault, battery and cruelty to children.

The teenager, whose name was withheld from the report, was negotiating a roundabout Tuesday afternoon when she pulled in front of Edge’s 2002 Nissan.

Edge followed the teenager to the Alpha Omega Middle/High School in Covington, rapped on her car window and threatened to beat her, Morrison said.

After the girl got out of her car and tried to summon help from the school office, Edge attacked, biting her shoulder and threatening to strangle her with a rope, Morrison said

Edge, who had an infant in the car, drove off but witnesses got her license plate number and called the sheriff.

Deputy Mark Lovell investigated and found an indented mark on the teen’s shoulder. “Complainant stated the female attacking the student had a yellow cord and was trying to strangle her with it,” Lovell wrote in his report.

Deputies tracked Edge to her home in Oxford by her tag number and arrested her, Morrison said.
