Woman drives over foot of officer after getting ticket

A Severna Park woman who had been given a traffic ticket by an officer accidentally drove over his foot, authorities said.

Officer Marc Ian Gelven pulled over a car that had turned from Truck House Road onto Benfield Road without stopping for a light about 5 p.m. The driver, Gayle Anne Jones, 34, of the 400 block of Bendale Drive, told Gelven she was late for an appointment and argued that the light had been yellow, police said.

When Gelven tried to explain the ticket, Jones grabbed his citation book, signed the ticket and demanded he return her license and registration so she could get to her appointment, Gelven said in his report.

As he tried to give her a copy of the ticket and warn her about speeding, Jones drove away, running over his foot, Gelven wrote.

Gelven did not seek medical attention. Jones was not charged.
