Newton Falls woman faces assault charge


NEWTON FALLS — A village woman will be in court Thursday in Newton Falls Municipal Court on a felonious-assault charge, accused of running over a male she was staying with at the Holiday Inn Express, 4181 state Route 5.

Brittany L. Sullivan, 29, of Woodglen Avenue, is accused of injuring a Leavittsburg man, 23, at 10:38 a.m. Feb. 23 in the hotel's parking lot.

A witness told police she heard a car “flying down the driveway” and thought she had seen feet “tumbling out the bottom of the car” and saw the man “fall out of the bottom of the car.” She then called 911.
