Man’s foot run over for money

Mysehia_RogersA Minden woman is in jail for running over her husband's foot with a motor vehicle, when he tried to stop her from leaving their residence.

Myeshia S. Rogers, 30, of the 300 block of S. Gum, has been arrested for aggravated second degree battery.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said Officer 1st Class Justin Kemp received a call last Tuesday in reference to a subject run over by a motor vehicle.

When he arrived at the scene, Sgt. Wayne Young was there and Pafford EMS reportedly dispatched.

"The victim's right foot was swollen and disfigured," Cropper said. "He indicated that Ms. Rogers – his wife – had run over his foot with a vehicle and left the scene.

Allegedly, Rogers had taken some money when she attempted to leave the residence.

"The victim followed her outside to get his money back," Cropper said.

Rogers then reportedly got into a car that was parked in the driveway.

"The victim apparently stood behind the vehicle to try and keep Ms. Rogers from leaving with his money, and she ran over his right foot," Cropper said.

Officers located Rogers' vehicle at another residence but could not find her.

"So, they had the vehicle towed because it was involved in an alleged crime," said the chief. "When officers returned to the police department, Rogers was there waiting to turn herself in."
