A mother in Tennessee has been arrested after she allegedly got into a fight with her teenage daughter and then drove down the street with the girl clinging to the hood of her vehicle, authorities said.

On Jan. 10, deputies received a call about a domestic incident, according to the Crockett County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials said the incident — recorded in a video obtained by police — “escalated” when 36-year-old Cassie Miller allegedly “drove recklessly down the road in a fit of rage.”

Police determined Miller’s teen daughter climbed on top of the car during the argument and was still on the vehicle when Miller allegedly accelerated down the street.

Authorities said the daughter “escaped without any physical injuries, but the emotional pain will remain.”

Sheriff Troy Klyce told WREG-TV that the teenager said her mother was driving “fast” and the law enforcement official said he could “imagine if she was going 40, it probably felt like 60 on top of the car.”

Miller was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse, aggravated assault, and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, authorities said.

Sheriff Klyce said that at the time of the incident Miller was already out on bond in connection with an unrelated domestic-related incident involving her husband. She had a no-contact order and was not supposed to be at the family's home, according to officials.
