COAL GROVE, Ohio (WSAZ) - A woman faces charges after police say she endangered the lives of a motorcyclist and others during an incident in Coal Grove.

Officers say the incident happened Tuesday as a man was riding his motorcycle in the village of Coal Grove. The man told police he was followed and threatened by a woman he knows driving a pickup truck.

Police later got access to the incident through a video posted on social media.

Officers found Heather Donahoe, 43, at a home in the 500 block of High Street in Coal Grove. She is charged with felonious assault and a number of misdemeanors.

Donahoe was taken to the Lawrence County Jail.

“The incident endangered the lives of the motorcyclist and other subjects on the roadway at the time,” Coal Grove Police said in a release.

Greg Smith recorded the video that police referred to.

“I don’t care who you are, you don’t drive like that and act like that,” Smith said. “There are too many kids out here. That wasn’t called for. She was putting not only her own life but many other people in danger.”
