GREENFIELD — A man was pinned between two cars early Sunday after an argument between a family member and the family member’s girlfriend turned violent.

Police arrested Maribel Ponte, 32, of Greenfield, around 1 a.m. after she rammed her car into her boyfriend’s parked car, causing the vehicle to lurch forward into the car ahead of it, pinning a man standing between the two vehicles, according to police reports.

Matthew Stone, who witnessed the incident, told police he and Ponte had gotten into an argument earlier in the evening in Plainfield, and a family member had driven to Plainfield to pick Stone up and bring him back to the home he shares with Ponte in Greenfield.

Ponte followed the pair back to Greenfield, and when she drove up to the couple’s house, she drove her car into the rear of Stone’s car, which was parked behind another car.

One of Stone’s family members was standing between the two vehicles, and his legs were pinned when the car moved forward after impact, police reports state.

The man was freed and taken to Hancock Regional Hospital with a complaint of leg pain. Police said Monday they did not know the extent of the man’s injuries.

Ponte refused to talk to officers who responded to the scene and requested a lawyer.

She was arrested and faces charges including recklessness with a deadly weapon and reckless driving. Both are misdemeanor charges. She remained in the Hancock County Jail at press time.
