ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (TBO.com) - Two women were arrested Tuesday evening on charges they pulled a woman out of a car and beat her after the woman honked her horn at their car, according to jail records.
Amber Lynn Beckwith, 26, of 4669 23rd Ave. S., and Ariel Anareshea Young, 22, of 827 40th Ave. S., were each charged with one count of burglary with battery. In addition, Beckwith, who was driving the car honked at, was charged with aggravated assault with a motor vehicle.
The victim, Rose Lucarell, was driving a Lexus on 34th Street South at about 6 p.m., when a Cadillac occupied by the suspects veered into Lucarell’s lane, said St. Petersburg police spokesman Mike Puetz. Lucarell honked her horn, Puetz said.
The suspects took exception to that, giving her the middle finger and throwing a water bottle at her car, the spokesman said. Beckwith then rammed the Lexus, trying to force it off the road, police records say.
