Ariz. GOP delegate indicted for attack

An Arizona Republican delegate has been indicted after Kingman police said she pointed a gun at a repo man and led authorities on a chase.

The Mohave Valley Daily News reports that a grand jury indicted last week 68-year-old Sharon Kay Holmes on two counts of aggravated assault, one count of unlawful flight from law enforcement and one count of criminal damage.

According to Kingman police, Holmes pointed a gun at a repo agent attempting to repossess her Jeep. While her Jeep was hooked up to the tow truck, police said she got into her vehicle and tried to drive off. She then led police on a brief chase.

It was unclear if Holmes has an attorney.

Holmes was a delegate to a GOP convention in Phoenix in May.
