A Woodward woman is in jail after she threatened to run a man over with her car, according to state police at Rockview.
Police were responding to a Gregg Township man’s call to report a trespassing incident on Feb. 20. The man told police he heard a car pulling into his driveway playing loud music before two women exited the vehicle and began walking around his garage.
The man confronted the women to ask what they were doing. Brittany Wingard, 26, said she was the landlord’s niece and was retrieving a camouflage crossbow.
After telling Wingard to not go through his personal items, the man attempted to take a picture of the vehicle’s license plate, but Wingard knocked the phone from his hand, shoved him and made two threats, one of which was that she was going to run him over with the car.

The vehicle’s registration was traced to Wingard’s grandmother, who told police Wingard was in possession of the vehicle for about two weeks.
Wingard admitted to being on the property and said she received permission from the landlord to enter the property, according to police.
Police then contacted the landlord’s daughter, who told police that her father had been in Mexico for about two weeks. She added that Wingard is not related to her father and did not know who she was. The woman also said no one gave Wingard permission to be on the property.
Wingard was charged with a felony count of criminal trespassing, a misdemeanor count of terroristic threats and harassment and summary counts of harassment.
Wingard was arraigned before District Judge Thomas Jordan, who set monetary bail at $10,000. She was unable to post bail and is being held at the Centre County Correctional Facility.
Wingard waived her preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
