Tooele, UT – I’m sure that last Tuesday, Alicia Ann Blood did not think her evening would end in jail.Â I’m all but certain she did not plan to attack her teenage son with a skateboard, or to run him down with her car.Â But Alicia Ann Blood, 38, apparently has anger issues.Â And last Tuesday, Blood lost her temper.
It started at a Tooele skate park on the evening of August 5. Blood went to get her son, who is sixteen years old.Â They were standing on a sidewalk next to the park.Â Blood’s son got mouthy with his mom, she yelled back.Â He didn’t want to leave, she wanted to go right then.Â As the argument escalated, Blood hit her son in the head with his own skate board. I know, right?Â That bitch crazy.
When the boy turned around and walked off, Alicia Blood got into her car, drove it over the curb, and drove across the grass straight at her son.Â Then, after she hit him, Blood got out of the car, stood over her son and yelled at him, then drove off – leaving her injured child on the grass.
Witnesses who saw the hit-and-run called 911 for help, and the boy was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries, which fortunately were pretty minor.Â Considering the violence of the attack, I’m sure this boy will have some scars – probably physical, and certainly emotional.
Blood was charged with aggravated assault, child abuse/neglect, and failure to give assistance at an accident.Â As of this morning, she had been appointed a public defender and was being held in the Tooele County Jail pending a bond hearing.
