Woman accused of trying to run over another woman in parking lot

SALISBURY — Two women were arrested in the parking lot at Sandy’s One Stop on Tuesday after deputies said a 20-year-old try to run over another woman with her car.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, Brooke Ashton Royston was charged after she followed 20-year-old Mary Beyer through Rockwell to the gas station.
Royston is accused of sending Beyer threatening messages on Facebook before the clash started about 4:30 p.m.
Once Royston confronted Beyer in the parking lot, an arrest report said, Royston “made several attempts to hit her with her car.”
But after jumping out of the way, deputies said, Beyer walked to the window of the Nissan Altima and punched Royston several times.
A passing North Carolina State Highway Patrol officer spotted the skirmish at 3005 N.C. 152 East and separated the two women.
After deputies arrived, both were taken into custody.
Royston was charged with simple assault, underage consumption, cyber stalking, misdemeanor stalking and misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.
Beyer was charged with communicating threats and misdemeanor simple assault.
They were both released after posting bond.
