A Nashville woman was arrested Thursday after a Metro police officer was hit by an SUV while assisting West End Middle School with student drop-off traffic.

On Wednesday morning, Officer Monica Blake was in the school's Bowling Avenue parking lot as a reminder to parents that students cannot be dropped off in the location, according to the Davidson County affidavit.

Blake was talking to one parent when Toya Kenner, 31, pulled up and tried to go around the officer and the parent's stopped vehicle, the affidavit stated. The officer took a step back and held up her hand for Kenner to stop her 2005 Nissan Armada. Instead, Kenner spun her wheels toward Blake, accelerated and hit the officer's left side with the SUV, the affidavit said.

Blake was not visibly injured, police said.

Kenner sped out of the parking lot and was arrested Wednesday afternoon on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and reckless driving, the affidavit said. She is being held on a $102,500 bond, the Tennessean reports.

Any motor cop that works a school zone can tell you, the most dangerous folks in any school zone are the soccer moms and the teachers! The last ones that you might think since their children are there and its all about safety. BUT hey have lead foots, are always in a hurry, disregard traffic regulations and anything that gets in their way! Vicious folks at times.

I'm wondering what warranted the $2,500 part of the $102,500.

Seriously, what possesses people to do things like this?
