WAUKEGAN (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A Chicago woman is jailed in Waukegan, after allegedly using a vehicle to strike a 2-year-old boy, his mother, uncle and grandmother. 

The incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 500 block of Helmholz, police say.

Twenty-year-old Zaria Greenlee and the toddler’s mother got into an argument. Greenlee got behind the wheel of a GMC Envoy and hit a fence and then took aim at the people. Police were called and arrested her.

Greenlee faces several charges, including reckless driving and aggravated battery.

Her bond was set at $250,000 in Lake County court.
