Trenton woman arrested for intentionally crashing into and punching Alachua residents

Staff report

ALACHUA, Fla. – Sheri Lynn Hurd, 19, of Trenton, was arrested last night and charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving damage to property, burglary of an occupied vehicle, and two counts of battery after allegedly crashing into another car intentionally and then punching the occupants of the car.

The victims, one of whom had a previous short-term relationship with Hurd, told an Alachua Police Department officer that they were driving on U.S. Hwy 441 in Alachua at about 9:45 p.m. last night when Hurd saw them and started driving aggressively, trying to cause a crash. At one point, Hurd allegedly swerved in front of the victims’ car and hit the brakes, causing the victims’ car to crash into her car. The victims drove into a nearby parking lot to assess the damage to their car, and Hurd allegedly followed them, got out of her car, and began punching one victim in the face. Hurd then allegedly ran around to the other side of the victims’ car, opened the door, got into the car, and started hitting the other victim. She then allegedly pulled that victim out of the car while hitting her. Both victims reportedly sustained visible injuries.

Officers located Hurd near the intersection of U.S. Hwy 441 and NW 147th Drive and took her into custody.

Hurd has no local criminal history; bail information is unavailable on holidays (today is a holiday for State governmental entities).

  • The victims must not have gotten the memo.

    HB 543, Florida’s new permitless carry law became effective July 1.

  • Gosh, do you suppose her parents told her “you’re out at 18” … and is overdue now?

  • Let’s keep these type of THUGS off our streets!!! She would’ve been in an obituary had she ran into me!!! 🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️

    • Totally agree with you. I bet she would not have tried that in Gilchrist county but everyone knows most of alachua county and Gainesville is made up of mostly Woke people who are easy victims that don’t have the guts to stand up for themselves
