Assault with a deadly weapon, and more

(Woman arrested for Assault)….El Centro Police responded to the call at around 1:30 Tuesday afternoon

. When officers arrived at 8th Street and Feildview Avenue they found a 43-year-old man suffering minor injuries. The Los Angeles area resident said he was struck by a vehicle driven by 28 year old Vivien Hodge of Brawley. Witnesses said they saw Hodge driving a Nissan south on 8th Street, swerving left and right. Near Fieldview Avenue, the male passenger was seen exiting the moving vehicle, hitting the asphalt and running across the street. They say the driver made a u-turn and drove behind the victim, striking him with the vehicle. The man was transported by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment. Hodge was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. She was booked into County Jail. Her bail was set at $50,000. El Centro Police Commander Jeff Mason says there was a relationship between the two. Mason says the suspect claimed she was taking the man to the jail so he could turn himself in on an outstanding warrant. The Commander says the victim left the hospital before he could be interviewed by police. A warrant was found on the victim, but now they cannot find the injured man.
