CARTERSVILLE — A Bartow County school board member is free on bond after police say she hit a teenager with her SUV in a dispute over a Walmart parking space.

Police say the unidentified 17-year-old girl was standing in a parking space Friday trying to save it for someone.

Police say the teen and 41-year-old Angela Cornett argued before Cornett hit the girl with her car. Authorities say the incident was recorded on surveillance cameras.

Cornett told the Daily Tribune of Cartersville that she never hit the teen and said the girl leaned against her car. A call to Cornett’s house was not answered Tuesday.

The teen had a scuff mark to her knee but did not suffer any serious injuries, police said.

I understand it was wrong to hit the teen, but I didn't know you could save parking spaces. You drive around hunting a parking space, see one in the next isle, drive around to it, and someone has came from another isle and stands in it waiting for friends car to get there. I can understand the drivers frustration, it should be first car there, parks. Not someone walk around, between cars, find and save one. Think I just might claim a good parking and write my name in it.
