Police said in court documents they were able to track Smith through the license plate of her blue 2011 Chevrolet Cruze that was photographed during the confrontation, according to court documents.
The female driver reported she followed Smith about one mile "to speak with the other driver and exchange insurance information" when Smith drove into a vacant parking lot and got out of her car, Kowalszuk said.
When the woman exited her car and requested the insurance information, Kowalszuk reported in court documents "(Smith) became belligerent and stated she was going to leave to get the police. The victim told (Smith) to stop ... at which time Smith struck the victim in the face with a closed fist."
"Smith then reached for her purse stating she had a gun and was a black woman in a white neighborhood. (Smith) then fled the scene again without exchanging insurance or contact information," police said.
Kowalszuk said the woman had "fresh blood, abrasions and redness" on her face when he took the report.
Smith's vehicle was found parked in her driveway on Damian Court, and appeared to have front end damage, Kowalszuk said. When police later reached Smith by telephone, she "admitted to the vehicle collision and assaulting the victim," Kowalszuk wrote in court documents.
Smith could not be reached for comment. An attorney was not listed in court documents.
