A Sacramento woman has been arrested in connection with a bizarre car-ramming spree caught on camera at a Natomas gas station.

Police said Saturday they’ve charged Roslyn Phipps, 38, with vandalism and assault with a deadly weapon in the May 20 incident.

A security camera captured a sport-utility vehicle ramming three occupied cars at an Arco station on the 3500 block of Northgate Boulevard in a span of 90 seconds. One car, whose occupant was pumping gas, was rammed twice.

The SUV appeared to be moving slowly, and police said the incident left passengers with minor injuries.

Officers arriving at the scene took a statement from a woman driving a Land Rover “with damage consistent with a vehicle collision,” police said in a news release. Her car was impounded but she was released, with officers referring the case to felony assault investigators. On Friday evening, Phipps was arrested and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail.

Phipps was being held on $60,000 bail.
