LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville woman is facing multiple charges after a domestic incident at a meeting spilled over to a parking lot.

Officers were called to a parking lot behind the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church on Chauncey Avenue around 8:30 p.m. Oct. 4, to take a report from the victim of a domestic incident when the alleged suspect returned and nearly ran over the victim and responding officers.

According to the arrest warrant, it all began when 43-year-old Michelle Carter became upset with the male victim when he arrived at a meeting with a female friend.

Police said Carter demanded to talk with the victim outside the meeting. Court documents state Carter threw hot coffee in the victim's face and physically attacked him.

The victim then went into the men's restroom. A short while later, Carter entered the restroom and began attacking the victim again, police said, ripping four necklaces from around his neck.

Carter left the restroom and returned with a gun. Police said Carter held the gun "inches from his face" and threatened to kill the victim. The victim wrestled the gun away from Carter and she left, that's when the victim's female friend called police.

Officers arrived on the scene to take the report. As officers were talking with the victim, Carter returned to the scene. Police said when she was confronted by an officer she ran from the parking lot to a waiting vehicle.

Police said Carter jumped in the driver's seat, put the car into gear and drove directly at the victim and officers at a high rate of speed with two children in the back seat. Both the victim and the officer had to jump out of the way to avoid being struck, according to the report.

Approximately two and half hours after the incident in the parking lot, police said Carter filed a domestic violence report with another officer which turned out to be a false report. Police said Carter claimed the incident in which she was the victim happened at the same time as the incident at the parking lot.

Carter is charged with two counts of wanton endangerment - police officer, one count fleeing or evading police, two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor, one count falsely reporting an incident, one count of assault, one count of wanton endangerment - victim and one count of terroristic threatening.
