A woman has been arrested after she allegedly attempted to run over a group of pedestrians having a snowball fight.
The incident was caught on camera by Joey Wieser in Capitol Hill, Seattle, yesterday (February 10) at around 8pm.
Sharing the video on Facebook, Joey explained how the woman drove her Jeep towards his friends after a snowball hit the vehicle.
In the footage, a blue Jeep can be seen turning around in the road before going up the grass, driving towards a group of people who run to avoid the vehicle.
The angry woman then gets out of the car yelling ‘you mother fucking got it inside my fucking car’ at the pedestrians.
One of the group then hurls a snowball at the driver, who then goes over to the pedestrian, pushing them, engaging in a fight.
Joey – who’s filming on his phone – goes over to the pair, along with his friends, and tells the woman to ‘chill’ and ‘let go’.
Holding her back, the driver responds saying ‘he threw the first punch, he hit me, you threw the fucking first punch dumb ass’.
The group then hold the woman up in the air, asking her to ‘please drive away’ before she ’causes any more issues’.
With one of her legs still being held up by the group, the driver asks repeatedly ‘let go of my mother fucking leg’.
Another pedestrian then approaches the scene asking if the driver is ‘okay’, at which point the group let her go.
As the woman tells the pedestrian she isn’t okay, the group say to her ‘you attempted to run people down, attempted manslaughter bitch’.

According to Kiro 7, police were then called to the scene where a field sobriety test showed the woman was high on marijuana.
She now faces reckless driving and DUI charges.
Since Joey uploaded the video – which was only last night – it’s received over 4,800 shares and 2,100 likes on Facebook.
He captioned the footage:

Joey later uploaded a photo of him and his pals, standing in front of the Jeep writing ‘marked safe from Raging Rachel’ followed by three laughing face emojis.
People commenting on the two posts are divided over the footage. Some say the group were in the wrong for throwing the snowballs at the Jeep, while others believe she should receive a custodial sentence for her actions.
