CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwestern Ohio woman has pleaded not guilty to dragging a man with her car for three-quarters of a mile and running over his ankle.

Thirty-one-year-old Brandi Lynn Stuntebeck of Colerain was being held on a $10,000 bond Monday stemming from her arrest Saturday on a felonious assault charge.

Fifty-three-year-old Donald Brownlee of Cincinnati says he was sitting at a stop sign in his friend's truck when Stuntebeck's car hit them from behind, and she fled.

He says his friend chased Stuntebeck and cornered her in a cul-de-sac. Both men got out, and Brownlee says he had no choice but to grab onto the woman's open passenger side window when she took a sharp turn.

He says she kept driving as he clutched the window and begged her to slow down.

Brownlee was able to let go when Stuntebeck hit a speed bump. He suffered minor injuries.
