Police: Cleveland police officer tries to run over man

MAPLE HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - A Cleveland police officer has been charged with domestic violence in Maple Heights. The domestic violence incident involving Cleveland Police Officer Shona Vanzant happened Monday night just before 8 p.m. at the Broadway entrance of the high school in Maple Heights.

She is now charged with domestic violence, a misdemeanor and she got out of jail 24 hours later on a personal bond.

Our Scott Taylor was the first to break this story on Twitter.

What relationship does Vanzant have with the victim? 

Maple Heights police not releasing a lot of info. 

According to the police report the caller told dispatch they saw a female beating up a male and then the female tried to run over the guy.

We did some digging and discovered Vanzant lives right down the street from the high school and guess what we found sitting in her driveway. 

The 2013 Nissan police towed away from the scene of the crime. It appears from the police report it's the same car used in the attempt to run over the victim.

We checked and it is registered to Officer Vanzant. 

We knocked on her front door and spoke to Vanzant at her home. She was polite but had no comment. 

People who know her down the block say she's a very nice person and they're surprised by the arrest.

Cleveland police tell us she will be placed on light duty pending the outcome of her legal issues.
