JAMESTOWN - Southeast District Court records show that a Jamestown woman has been charged in regard to an incident last week in the southwest part of the city.


Fifty-eight-year-old Karen Kinzler has been charged with Class C felony aggravated assault-domestic violence and reckless endangerment. She also faces a Class B misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief. 

According to the charging documents, Kinzler struck a woman with a car in the driveway of a home in southwest Jamestown on the morning of March 15. The car also struck the house and damaged a gas line meter. Houses in a one-block area were evacuated while the Jamestown Fire Department and Montana-Dakota Utilities worked to shut off the gas. 

The victim, who is not being identified under Marsy's Law, was treated and released at Jamestown Regional Medical Center for injuries suffered when she was struck by the car. 

Court documents say Kinzler told police she thought the car was in reverse when she accelerated. She is currently free on a personal recognizance bond. Her next court appearance has not been scheduled.
