Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis has been named as the “suspect” who was “arrested” in the hit-in-run incident in front of an elementary school.
According to a report from RadarOnlin, a “white female with dirty blonde hair” was behind the wheel of the 2022 Ford Bronco.
The reality star’s 2022 Ford SUV struck a school resource officer directing traffic in front of Whitesville Elementary School and took off. The injured officer received medical attention on site. The driver was not identified but the vehicle was found outside the residence of the reality star’s home later that day.
The incident is under investigation. A deputy suffered from a broken hand during the incident.
Kathryn lost custody of her children Kensie, 9, and Saint, 7, to her ex-boyfriend Thomas Ravenel in February 2023 after failing numerous drug tests.
“As I began to ask the traffic leaving the school to take the right and the traffic coming from Highway 52 to take the left, I noticed that the vehicle traveling from South Live Oak Drive was not slowing down. “I blew on my whistle and stepped to the left to get out of the vehicle’s way. As I stepped to the left, the vehicle drove past me, striking me on the right side. The stop sign broke in my hand and landed in the roadway. The driver did not slow down or changed driving pattern prior to or after striking me,” the injured officer wrote.
