An Athens woman was charged with felonious assault on a law enforcement officer.

Athens County Sheriff Patrick Kelly said Sunday, as deputy Jen Atkins was pulling into a driveway, responding to a domestic dispute, she saw 36 year old Tracey Jack getting into her vehicle. Atkins blew her air horn and in an attempt to flee, Jack put her car in reverse. As deputy Atkins blew her air horn again, Jack accelerated at a high speed ramming into the front end of Deputy Atkins cruiser. Deputy Atkins ordered Jack out of the vehicle and took her into custody. Jack was arrested for felonious assault and felony vandalism.
