DailyMail- A mother-of-two was arrested this weekend after running over her boyfriend in the parking lot of a strip club.
Erikka Christine Hope, 24, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, battery, leaving the scene of an accident with injuries and possession of a controlled substance.
The incident happened Saturday around 1am, when Hope drove to the PinUps Gentleman’s Club in Palm Bay, Florida, where her live-in boyfriend was hanging out.
The two got into an argument in the strip club’s parking lot and surveillance footage reportedly shows Hope slapping and punching her boyfriend before getting into her car.
She then backed the Toyota up, halted and then took aim at her boyfriend standing in the parking lot – striking him and causing him to roll up onto the hood of the car and hit the windshield.
Hope then proceeded to hit two more vehicles as she fled the scene.
She was later arrested at the home they both shared. When they arrested her, police also found several tablets of Xanax in her car, leading them to slap her with the possession of a controlled substance charge.
Authorities say they identified her by the ‘still standing’ tattoo on her leg.
While Hope’s boyfriend has not been named, a man on Facebook named Anthony Martin claims he was the man injured in the incident – and has even posted pictures of his battered face.
In a photo showing cuts and bruises to his face and shoulder, Martin writes: ‘Glory to God I’m stil standing s*** could of been worse but God been watchin over me and I kno he would never let up #godbless [sic]’.
When concerned friends pressed him for more information, Martin wrote that a ‘drunk driver’ hit him, before posting a screenshot of a news article which included his girlfriend’s mugshot.
When a friend joked whether that was their ‘honeymoon,’ Martin responded: ‘I didn’t take her. She showed up. And I still bonded her [f***] a** outta jail [for what]’.
According to photos posted on her Facebook, Hope appears to be the mother of two young sons.
She was booked at the Brevard County Jail on $33,000 bond, which her boyfriend claims to have paid on Facebook.
Her next court appearance is scheduled for May 3.
That’s some type of love, folks. See, I don’t go around judging how couples operate. Sometimes the girl’s in charge, sometimes the guy’s in charge. Some couples are all cutesy and lovey dovey and some are just screaming matches and pure relent. And sometimes in relationships, you get run the fuck over because you were chilling out at the local titty bar and then you gotta “bond her fuck ass” outta jail for what seems like no reason. Well, Anthony Martin, that reason is because of love. You love your girl. Yea I might be out side of Pinups Gentleman’s Club yelling Worldstar! and wildin out saying how his main chick just bulldozed his ass with her toyota, but in the end, deep down inside what they got is love for one another that made him bail her ass out of prison for attempted murder/vehicular manslaughter charges. Am I willing to do the same for love? Fuck no. But that’s what makes everyone’s definition of love special.
