Report: Girlfriend rams car

FAITH — Authorities have charged a woman with assault with a deadly weapon after they say she followed her boyfriend down Faith Road and rammed her car into his after he pulled to the side of the road.
Emily Ann Shepherd, 21, of 1050 Castlebrook Drive, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and simple assault Thursday and held without bond until her first appearance in court today.
Shepherd told authorities her boyfriend had been seeing another female.
According to a report with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, Michael Button, Shepherd’s boyfriend, said he was driving down Faith Road and passed Shepherd. Shepherd made a U-turn and began to follow him, the report says. He turned onto Woodberry Road and pulled over to the side of the road to figure out why she was following him. The report says before Button could get out of the car, Shepherd slammed into the back of his car. Button drove to his home at 560 Deck Lane.
When they got to the home, Button said Shepherd swung at him a few times and grabbed his neck, scratching him.
The N.C. Highway Patrol responded to take the wreck report and then took Shepherd to the magistrate’s office, where she was charged.
