By Globe Staff
Lawrence City Councilor Grisel Silva was arrested Wednesday night for allegedly ramming her car into her estranged husband’s car, Lawrence Police said.
Silva’s husband, Nelson, called police shortly after 6 p.m. to report the incident at the intersection of Avon and Jackson Streets. Nelson Silva told police that his wife intentionally rammed into his 2006 Ford Escape SUV with her 2001 Ford Focus as he was driving his girlfriend, said Mike Garrihy, assistant to the Lawrence police chief.
Nelson Silva told police that before his wife hit him, she was following him in her car while sending him angry text messages.
Grisel Silva told police that she had hit her husband’s car unintentionally, only after he stopped short in front of her. Her car had heavy front-end damage; her husband’s car was also damaged. But there were no injuries.
Grisel Silva was charged with assault, assault with intent to commit a felony, malicious destruction of personal property over $250, and operating to endanger. She was arrested in her home last night and is being arraigned in Lawrence District Court today.
Garrihy said Grisel is well-known in the community but to not to police. “I think people were surprised,” he said.
