BILLINGS, Mont. – A woman has been accused of intentionally hitting her son with her car.

Elvira Najar was arrested early on Thursday. The 34-year-old woman appeared in Justice Court on a charge of felony assault with a weapon.

According to court records, Najar was upset because she thought that her 12-year-old son was spending time with his father.

The boy reportedly told police that he had been in the car with his mother and one of his friends.

The boy said that when he got out of the car, his mother drove up onto the curb and hit him with the car, knocking him down.

Najar’s bail has been set at $7,500.

According to the boy’s friend, Najar told her son, “I brought (you) into the world…I can take you out, and I don’t care if I go to jail for it.”
