OKLAHOMA CITY - A woman is in jail charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

Police said she tried to run over several people at Lake Overholser and, when officers arrested her, they smelled alcohol.

"I'm frantic. I'm not thinking. I can barely breathe," said Megan Stuart.

The bizarre and terrifying ordeal started at Lake Overholser.

Stuart and her husband went there to play Pokemon Go.

"We do it as a date thing to bond together," she said.

It was a fun date taken over by fear when 29-year-old Yiomara Ramirez came into the picture.

Stuart said she blocked their path with her car and refused to move.

"My husband went to go around her, and she just started yelling and screaming and flipping us off. She was yelling. She was cursing," Stuart said. "Most of it was in Spanish. I could understand something like 'You die.'"

Words that cut deep.

Stuart suffers from PTSD.

"I was already starting to have an anxiety attack and a panic attack," she said.

All she wanted to do was leave the park and get home.

They turned the car around and drove in the other direction.

But, that didn't work either.

"She was blocking the exit. We were pretty much stuck," she said.

She was also confused by Ramirez's erratic behavior.

She said Ramirez got in and out of her car several times and, at one point, laid down in the middle of the road yelling and screaming.

Finally, she said Ramirez got in her car and pulled forward just enough for Stuart's husband to squeeze their truck by.

They made it past her.

But, the relief ran short.

The nightmare still wasn't over.

"She actually started following us, going off on other people. She tried hitting other people, running them off the road," she said.

If that wasn't enough, Stuart's said Ramirez rammed into the back of their truck, causing them to run off the road several times.

By now, police had gotten several 911 calls about Ramirez.

They arrested her a short time later.

It was over without anyone getting hurt, at least not physically.

"Mentally and emotionally, yeah, big time," she said.

When officers arrested Ramirez, they smelled alcohol on her breath and body, saying she appeared to be intoxicated.

Ramirez is still in jail.

She has two prior drunk driving convictions and a suspended license.
