Chloe Wright, 25, pleaded not guilty on Monday to a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon after a June hit-and-run, the Cape Cod Times reported.


A driver said he was stopped for a red light at the intersection of Route 28 in Barnstable when a driver behind him began honking their car's horn.

The man then told police that the other driver, identified by police as Wright, began following him and started yelling at him, according to the outlet.

The man said he thought the driver was telling him something was wrong with his car, prompting him to pull over and step into the road.

The man then told police that's when Wright began yelling at him because of his Trump bumper sticker, the local newspaper reported.

“She said, ‘You voted for Trump?’” the man wrote in a police statement. “I said yes. She called me a racist and several other names.”

The man began recording Wright on his cellphone when she reportedly drove around his car, stepped on the gas and drove at him, hitting his open car door, according to the police report obtained by the Times. 

“She bent my door and I had to lean back to avoid getting hit,” the man wrote, according to the Times. “She also hit the side of my car.”

Police noted that the man's video and his girlfriend, who was also in the car, corroborated his written statement.

The oncoming driver then reportedly drove away, but the man captured the car's license plate number, the outlet reported. Police then traced the license plate number to Wright.

Wright was stopped by police weeks later after a random check of her plates revealed an open warrant for the charges against her. 

The newspaper reported that she is also facing charges for vandalizing property and leaving the scene of property damage.

She was released on a $1,250 bail and ordered to stay away from the victim.
