Woman charged in hit and run following argument at Uptown bar


A 37-year-old woman has been charged after police say she intentionally ran over a man with her car following a spat at an Uptown Minneapolis bar Aug. 15.

Angela D. Jackson, of Minneapolis, was charged with first-degree attempted premeditated murder, according to the Hennepin County jail roster. She was arrested Sunday – nine days after the incident outside the Bulldog Uptown bar on Lyndale Avenue South.

She is scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon. Prosecutors say they want bail to be set at $1 million, WCCO reports.

According to the criminal complaint:

Jackson struck 39-year-old Tarrince Emmanuel Winbush at the intersection of Lyndale Avenue South and 26th Street South after Jackson and several others got into an argument over a bar tab at the Bulldog Uptown bar and were asked to leave.

The argument continued outside the bar around closing time (2 a.m.). Then Jackson got in her car with two other women and did a U-turn in an attempt to hit Winbush, but she missed and hit a parked vehicle, witnesses said.

She then went around the block to return to the bar, when she spotted Winbush walking down Lyndale Avenue. She crossed the road and hit him "at a high rate of speed." Witnesses said Winbush was sent flying into the air.

He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center where he's currently listed in critical condition and it's "unknown if he will live."

Jackson fled the scene, hitting two vehicles in the process. She later removed the car's license plates and hid the vehicle in a garage for several days before police tracked it down, witnesses said.

Jackson has an extensive criminal history, which includes convictions involving drunken driving, driving with a revoked license, theft, check forgery, assault, disorderly conduct and prostitution, according to state court records.
