Prosecutors on Thursday charged a woman with a count of felony assault with a weapon, accusing her of intentionally hitting her 12-year-old son with a car.

Elvira Najar, 34, appeared in Yellowstone County Justice Court, where she was also charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief.

According to charging documents, police arrested Najar after responding at about 12:20 a.m. Thursday to a disturbance at a home on the 400 block of Hillview Lane.

A woman reported that Najar had come to her home and broken a window. While there, an officer spoke to a father and son. The son, who was crying, said that his mother, Najar, had hit him with a car a short time before, court records say.

The boy said he had been in car with one of his friends and his mother, who was upset with him because she thought he was spending time with his father, who court records say lives at the home on Hillview Lane where the disturbance was reported.

The boy said he stepped out of the car and that his mother then drove up onto a curb and hit him, knocking him to the ground.

The boy reportedly told police he was in shock and couldn’t believe his mother would hit him with a car on purpose.

Police later interviewed the boy’s friend, who had been in the car. He said he heard Najar tell her son, “I brought (you) into the world … I can take you out, and I don’t care if I got to jail for it,” charging documents state.

Judge Pedro Hernandez set Najar’s bond at $7,500 and ordered her to appear in district court on June 27.
