DES MOINES, Iowa — An Iowa woman went to extreme measures while trying to stop her car from being towed.
Police say Shyla Chilous, 22, ran over the foot of Debbie Garza, a parking enforcement officer, on Thursday. Garza was waiting on a towing company to come remove the car, due to outstanding tickets Chilous had incurred, KCCI reported. When Chilous appeared and realized her car was about to be towed, she got in and tried to take off. As she backed up, she ran over Garza's foot. Garza screamed and told Chilous to move the car off her foot, but Chilous ran instead, KCCI reported.
Chilous led police on a foot chase and officers were required to use force to arrest her, KCCI reported. She faces charges of interference with official acts and leaving the scene of an injury accident, police told KCCI.

PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. — Authorities said a Georgia woman accused of setting a fire that spread to 19 houses started it in the house she lost in a divorce.
Paulding County fire officials said Adrienne Satterly, 41, of Hiram, stacked a pile of mattresses in the living room of the home, on Rosemont Court in Hiram, early Sunday morning.
She then lit the mattresses on fire and left the house with her two cats, fire officials said.
The fire spread to 19 separate homes in the Greystone Subdivision, destroying four homes and damaging 16 others, firefighters said. The fire was reported at 3:25 a.m.
Satterly is charged with 14 counts of first-degree arson and three counts of aggravated animal cruelty.
Neighbors told WSBTV that they ran out of their homes with almost nothing but their lives.
“I lost my two dogs, which is the hardest thing because material things can be replaced, but my dogs is my -- that breaks my heart,” neighbor Auzalea Godfrey said.
Fire investigators said Satterly called 911 after walking about an hour to a nearby Walmart after starting the fire.
Satterly remained jailed Tuesday in Paulding County, where she is being held without bond.

SAN ANTONIO — Police are investigating after a 6-year-old boy and three of his family members were shot Sunday evening in the parking lot of a Texas Roadhouse steakhouse in San Antonio.
Police Chief William McManus said Sunday that the shooting, which happened as people were waiting outside the restaurant to eat, left the 6-year-old with a gunshot wound to his leg. Police said two of the boy’s three injured family members, all adults in their 20s, were hospitalized Sunday in critical but stable condition.
The shooting happened around 8:40 p.m. outside the Texas Roadhouse steakhouse on Cinema Ridge, the San Antonio Express-News reported.
“We do not believe that this shooting is random,” McManus said. “There were a number of people that were standing (outside the restaurant). All the people that were hit were from the same family.”
The gunman, who has not been identified, fired about 10 shots at the family within 15 feet of the front of Texas Roadhouse, the Express-News reported. He was masked at the time of the shooting, according to the newspaper.

PARKER COUNTY, Texas — A woman in Texas has been arrested after she was caught on camera tossing her small dog named Pumpkin out of a moving vehicle.
The Chihuahua-mixed breed survived the incident and was found Thursday roaming a family's rural property in Weatherford, WFAA reported. Surveillance cameras on the property provided clear identification of the vehicle. The dog's microchip further confirmed the owner's identity.
When questioned by Sgt. Ricky Montgomery, Janet Byas, 43, initially denied tossing the dog out of the vehicle. When the evidence of her involvement was presented to her, Montgomery said she admitted that she threw the dog out of the car because she was frustrated with it. She said Pumpkin would not stay on her property and she "couldn't handle it anymore," WFAA reported.
When WFAA asked for Montgomery's reaction to Byas' reasoning for throwing the dog out of the car, Montgomery said, "Grow up."
Byas was arrested and charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty.
