A Gainesville woman was accused of driving toward men working for a repossession company, with one man being taken to the hospital, according to authorities.

Patricia Renee Garrison, 46, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Dana Drive in Gainesville.

“During the initial investigation, deputies determined that two men with a repossession company

had arrived at the address to repossess the SUV. As she was leaving the location, Garrison

intentionally drove the Chevrolet Equinox toward one of the men, hitting one of his legs,” Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth wrote in an email.

One 53-year-old did not suffer any injuries.

“She struck a second victim with the SUV, hitting one of his ankles and an arm. Hall County Fire

Services transported the injured man, 32, to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with non-life

threatening injuries,” Booth wrote.

Doyle Timothy Garrison, 55, a passenger in the SUV and married to Patricia Garrison, was charged with two counts of party to the crime of aggravated assault.

The Garrisons were arrested when “they agreed to return to the residence,” Booth wrote.

The case is still under investigation.
