Husband Also Targeted
AN ANDERSON COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA, WOMAN was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder Tuesday after she tried to run down an EMT with her car.
Pamela Thomas, 41, began her day of rage when she attempted to stab her husband, a dentist. After that little incident cooled down, she attacked one of their two children. Thomas then called for an ambulance saying that she was having "chest pains." When the ambulance arrived and the crew was unloading their gear, she jumped into one of the family cars and used it to ram the ambulance, narrowly missing the two medics.

Next she jumped out of her damaged car and got into another one and started chasing down one of the EMT's, knocking down several mailboxes along the way. The Anderson Independent Mail continues:
The deputies took Thomas into custody after a brief chase in which she also hit a patrol cruiser, according to a Anderson County Sheriff’s Office report.
"This incident yesterday could easily have resulted in loss of life," said Marlene McClain, director of victim services for the sheriff’s office, at a hearing Wednesday before Magistrate Tom Tucker. Dr. Thomas and his teen daughter Ashley attended the hearing but did not speak.
McClain also said that Pamela Thomas attacked one of her two children Tuesday, adding that they "fear for their safety."
(Magistrate) Tucker did not set bail for Thomas on the two attempted murder charges after listening to McClain’s comments. Thomas is scheduled to make a court appearance July 29 on these charges, which carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
She also posed a question to the judge at the conclusion of the hearing: "Does my husband want to reconcile with me, or does he just want me to drop dead?"
Tucker replied, "I can’t answer that question for you ma’am."
