Woman accused of ramming car again and again

An Oak Harbor woman is in jail after driving into her sister’s car over and over again, according to court documents.

In the afternoon of Sept. 9, multiple people called 911 to report that neighbors were hitting each other with their vehicles in an Oak Harbor neighborhood.

An officer who responded spoke to a woman who explained that her sister, 21-year-old Zylveranne Laborce, had gotten very upset when she tried to leave. Laborce allegedly tried to stop her from leaving by pulling her car into the driveway and intentionally hitting her sister’s car, according to the police report on the incident.

The woman said she backed up and tried to leave, but Laborce intentionally hit her car several more times, causing additional damage, the report states.

The woman said Laborce was “driving like a crazy person” and drove on the sidewalk and the lawn, the officer wrote. Nobody was injured.

Laborce was throwing things out of the truck of her car when the police first arrived. She was placed in the back of a police car, where she started laughing hysterically, the officer wrote.

Laborce was later arrested on suspicion of assault in the second degree and reckless endangerment.

She is being held in jail on $15,000 bail.

The judge found that Laborce’s mental condition is such that she needs to be interviewed by a mental health professional for possible commitment to a treatment facility before she can be released from jail.
