A Massapequa woman was in serious condition Thursday after being dragged by her daughter’s car during a family dispute, Nassau County police said.
An argument began at 1:15 p.m. Wednesday between Shaquay Minter, 25, and her mother, 42, at their home on County Line Road, and escalated in the driveway as the younger woman got into her car, police said.
As the mother reached through the open door to retrieve her pocketbook from the car, Minter backed up the vehicle, trapping her mother, police said.
The woman was dragged down the driveway, authorities said. A witness called police, who took Minter into custody less than 10 minutes later. Police did not release the victim's identity.
Homicide detectives were trying to determine whether some of the victim's injuries were caused by being run over. She was taken to a hospital Wednesday night, police said.
Minter was arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead on felony charges of first-degree criminal contempt and recklessly causing serious injury with a weapon, according to court records. Minter was assigned a court-appointed attorney. The case was adjourned until July 2 and Minter remained in custody Thursday night with bail set at $250,000 bond or $125,000 cash, according to court records.
