State police learned that the parties involved in the incident were in the Arby’s parking lot in Seaford.

Further investigation revealed that a 38-year-old woman was driving on the back roads when a black Dodge Charger came up behind her and was being driven in an aggressive manner.

As the woman pulled onto Sussex Highway, the Charger sideswiped her car causing her to go into a ditch, Cpl. Jaffe said.

The driver of the Charger was identified as April L. Prior, 26, of Seaford.  Also in the Charger during this incident was the victim’s husband, 28-year-old Jeron E. Henry of Delmar.

Henry got out of the Charger and became disorderly while threatening the victim, according to state police investigation.

No injuries were reported from this incident.
