Arkansas City Police Department logoAn Arkansas City woman was arrested after allegedly trying to run over an Arkansas City man during an incident early Aug. 24 in southeast Arkansas City.

Kristy Kaye Sodowsky, 42, was arrested by the Arkansas City Police Department on suspicion of aggravated assault, battery-domestic violence, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.

She was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in Winfield in lieu of $14,000 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City.

Police responded shortly after 2 a.m. Aug. 24 to the intersection of Adams Avenue and B Street for a report of a female trying to run over a male with her vehicle.

She fled the area prior to their arrival.

The 42-year-old male victim reported the incident started as domestic violence at his residence. The victim then left the residence on a bicycle.

When he reached the 300 block of East Adams Avenue, Sodowsky caught up in a minivan. A verbal and physical altercation ensued. The victim then rode his bicycle across the street and onto the sidewalk.
