Deborah Edmonston

New information about the arrest of Clark County Senior Family Service Specialist Deborah Ann Edmonston has surfaced - though there are still several questions to be answered.

Edmonston, who was charged with two counts of battery with a deadly weapon related to domestic violence, child endangerment and malicious destruction of private property, was driving her 14-year-old daughter to her father's house and pulled the girl by her hair back into the car when she tried to get out, according to an arrest report.

Back in the car, Edmonston steered her own pickup truck directly next to her the girl's father, so that the rear-view mirrors of the cars were touching, and the 14 year old could only barely squeeze out of her mother's car. When she was out, and wedged between the two cars, Edmonston reportedly began pulling forward, "endangering (the teen) by pushing her body with the door frame and making her afraid of being crushed between the vehicles," the arrest report said.

The teenager got into the passenger seat of her father's car, and the parents reportedly exchanged angry words. Then Edmonston drove her truck into the father's car and chased him as he sped away. He called the police, and she apparently gave up chase.
