A dispute over a parking spot landed a Longview woman behind bars Wednesday night and sent a man to an area hospital.

Longview police arrested 43-year-old Vanesa Blackshire ay about 8 p.m. after officers said Blackshire hit a man with her vehicle in the parking lot of Walmart in the 2400 block of Gilmer Road.

Police spokeswoman Kristie Brian said the victim was standing in one of the parking spots with a shopping cart waiting for his wife to loop around back into the parking spot.

"Evidently the suspect wanted to space also, so she hit the man with her car," Brian said.

Brian said the victim wasn't transported from the scene of the crash, but later went to the hospital complaining of pain.

Blackshire was released from jail Thanksgiving morning on $10,000 bond.
