LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Lufkin Police Department arrested a 25-year-old woman Monday in connection to allegations that she ran over a man on a bicycle. At the time, she allegedly had three unrestrained young children in her SUV.
Kanetria Symone Hadnot, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a first-degree aggravated assault of a date or family member with a weapon charge and a second-degree endangering a child charge. Collectively, her bail amount has been set at $15,000.
According to the arrest affidavit East Texas News obtained Thursday, the incident occurred at about 6:52 p.m. on Sunday in the 500 block of Hoskins Avenue. On Sunday, an officer was dispatched to the 1300 block of North Warren Street in reference to an auto-pedestrian accident.
When the LPD officer arrived on the scene, he learned that Hadnot had hit a man on a bicycle with her gold Chevrolet Trailblazer and was still driving recklessly up and down the streets, the press release stated. Lufkin Fire/EMS was already on scene treating the alleged victim's injuries.
While the officer was speaking to the alleged victim, dispatch told him that Hadnot had called her mother, who then called the Lufkin Police Department and said that her Hadnot had called her and told her to come get her daughter's three children.
The alleged victim told the Lufkin PD officer that Hadnot had chased him in her SUV while he was riding his mountain bike, the affidavit stated. The man said that he tried to cut across the yard of a home in the 500 block of Hoskins Street, but Hadnot followed him, striking the back of his bicycle with her Trailblazer.
According to the affidavit, the alleged victim said he was knocked to the ground. He told the officer that he was unsure if Hadnot's vehicle had run over him, but there were black marks on his shoe that appeared to have been made by something rubber like a tire, the affidavit stated.
The alleged victim also told the officer that Hadnot was barely able to get her SUV to stop before it drove off into the deep ditch across from the house in the 500 block of Hoskins Avenue on the North Warren Street side, the affidavit stated.
The alleged victim was taken to Woodland Heights Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
Later that day. Lufkin PD officers went to Hadnot's home on Whipporwill Drive and arrested her without any further incident. They also took pictures of the damage to Hadnot's SUV.
Family members picked up Hadnot's three children and took them to their aunt's house. When one of the Lufkin PD officers contacted the aunt, she told him that children are 2, 4, and 10 respectively.
Further investigation revealed that there were no child safety seats in Hadnot's SUV. The affidavit stated that it was clear that the children weren't restrained, and they could have been seriously injured if Hadnot had driven into the ditch or collided with the large stump in the yard where she hit the victim.
