Dothan police arrested a Rehobeth woman who caused chaos at the Circle West Shopping Center this week after keying a woman’s truck and throwing the keys on top of McAlister’s Deli.
Kelly Michelle Stahl, 34, is being charged with first-degree criminal mischief.
On Dec. 9, Stahl allegedly entered a business and took someone’s key. She used the key to write “fat cow” and other obscenities into the paint of a Ford F-150 in the parking lot, according to Dothan Police Lt. Scott Owens.
When officers were dispatched to the scene, they witnessed Stahl punching and kicking the truck.
“It was apparently over a separation with a domestic partner. The truck was the new girlfriend’s vehicle,” Owens said.
While officers were on the scene, Stahl attempted to assault the new girlfriend, but was restrained by law enforcement.
“At some point, Stahl snatched the keys away and threw them on the roof of McAllister’s Deli,” Owens said. “The fire department had to be called to use a ladder to get the keys off the roof.”
The total damage to the truck was estimated at $4,900.
Stahl was released from jail after posting a $15,000 bond.
