Woman drove vehicle into Mountain Home family vacation home
A Louisiana woman knowingly backed up her car Wednesday night at the vacation home used by her child and grandchildren at Mountain Home, Baxter County Sheriff’s Deputies said.
At around 10:10 p.m. Wednesday, Shannon Marie Langevin, 49, of Prairieville, Louisiana, drove her vehicle to a residence on Larkspur Lane, according to a press release from the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office.
MPs determined the residence was a vacation rental and the victims, who were from Louisiana and Georgia, were staying there with Langevin, MPs said.
Witnesses told MPs that Langevin tried to leave the house with his grandchildren, the statement said. She was then escorted.
Witnesses said Langevin then got into his rental car and deliberately backed up through two sliding glass doors, MPs said. According to the deputies, the vehicle entered about 6 feet into the house, causing extensive damage.
Langevin’s grandchildren, whose age was not released on Thursday, were playing in the room she crashed into, MPs said.
Langevin was arrested and held in Baxter County Jail, where she remained on Thursday in lieu of $ 25,000 bail, MPs said.
She faces six counts of aggravated assault against a family or household member, two counts of aggravated assault, one criminal mischief in the first degree, three counts of endangering the well-being of a minor and one count each of second-degree assault against a family member, driving while intoxicated, refusal of a breathalyzer test, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license, the statement said.
