DAYTON — A Troy woman has been indicted after police said she intentionally drove her SUV, which had four children inside, into a vehicle that was being driven by her child’s father.

Taylor Marie Hines, 26, was indicted Wednesday on charges of felonious assault, endangering children, criminal damaging, domestic violence and violation of a protection order, according to court documents.

The incident happened Nov. 14 when a Ring doorbell notified a man that video had been captured of Hines driving a Dodge Journey and hitting his Chevrolet Express parked in his driveway while he was at the B&B Lounge and Grill in Dayton.

Police said Hines allegedly punched her child’s father three times. Court documents showed the man had a temporary protection order issued against Hines in June 2021.

Police said she then got back inside the SUV and struck the man’s SUV after he got inside. Four children under the age of eight were inside Hines’ SUV at the time of the incident.

Hines is currently in custody at the Montgomery County Jail.
