Miami-Dade police say they have arrested the driver who angrily slammed her car into a man and plowed through the front door of a Northwest Miami-Dade coin laundry early Monday morning.

Police charged Tiffany Taylor Monday night with aggravated battery involving bodily harm with a deadly weapon and leaving the scene of a crash with serious bodily injury.

She was held Tuesday at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on $20,000 bond.

Police say Taylor drove to Wash World at Northwest 58th Street and 27th Avenue around 2:30 a.m. to confront Sabrina Bullard, the 42-year-old attendant of the laundry. The two women had an altercation the previous day.

Witnesses said Taylor, 25, got out of her car and sprayed an unknown liquid on Bullard and her son, Adolphus Melvin, who got between them.

Melvin, 24, tried to stop Taylor, who then got into her four-door Chevy Caprice and drove into him. The car pushed through Melvin through the glass doors of the shop and pinned him beneath the sedan. He suffered a fractured leg and was taken to the hospital.
