After arriving at Tilly’s, Morris allegedly grabbed an empty wine bottle and swung it at the other woman. The bottle did not hit her as Smith stepped in and grabbed her.
Moments later, the three of them were asked to leave by the staff.
A witness then shared with police that she was at a bar when she saw Morris walk up and cut Smith with his car in the parking lot.
“And he came down, at that time… [Morris] then backed up on him, then pulled forward and hit him for the third time,’ the probable cause affidavit states.

Apple AirTags are coin-sized devices that can be attached to keys, backpacks, purses and other items to help people find them through iPhones. they are lost.
The $30 device is also used by stalkers to track people. When it was released in April 2021, Apple told consumers not to worry because AirTags were designed to prohibit “unwarranted tracking” by alerting a nearby iPhone when an AirTag has become separated from its user. For example, if someone places an AirTag on a car but does not get into the car, the driver of the vehicle should be alerted that there is an AirTag nearby or is driving with it.
The AirTag should then start emitting a sound to notify nearby people of its location. On the downside, some users have reported that the alert and sound can take hours or even days to send and can even be turned off.
The AirTag’s location is also sent to the user’s iCloud – where it can be seen on a map, according to Apple’s website. Using the “Find My” app, the system provides its owner with step-by-step instructions to locate the tag before finally retrieving it.
