Clay County Sheriff Eddie Scott says Hart entered the store and attempted to purchase some items and left the store before the transaction was approved.

Scott says the store's clerk tried to stop her because the transaction was denied.

Hart is accused of hitting the clerk with her vehicle while leaving the scene.

Hart's bond was set at $5,307.75.

Noxubee County Sheriff Terry Grassaree says Hart also faces a grand larceny charge. He says the car used in Clay County was stolen from Noxubee County.
