A Minneapolis woman who ran down a man outside an Uptown bar was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday morning..

Angela Jackson, 38, pleaded guilty last month to attempted first-degree murder after she hit Tarrince Winbush with her car outside the Bulldog Restaurant on Lyndale Avenue last August.

The attack left Winbush in a coma, which he is not expected to survive, the Hennepin County Attorney's Office says.

According to the criminal complaint:

Jackson was with a group of people at the bar, when some in the group began arguing over the bar tab. They were asked to leave, and continued the argument outside.

Jackson said she was angry with one of the men because he hit her while they were arguing inside the bar. So she got into her car with two other women and tried to run over the man. She missed and hit a parked vehicle, witnesses said.

She then drove around the block and hit Winbush, who was walking alongside the man she was angry with.

According to the Hennepin County Attorney's office, Jackson told the judge that Winbush "was never my enemy," and repeated several times that she was sorry.
