MONROE, La. — A Monroe woman is facing charges after a physical altercation leads to the victim being hit with a vehicle and getting run over.

According to arrest reports for 22-year-old Brittani Gaines, deputies with the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office were called to the Hillside West Apartments in West Monroe on September 4 in reference to a hit and run.
