(Memphis) A Memphis mom is lockedĀ  up on $50,000 bond accused of trying to run down the father of her child and his fiance.

It happened in the 3400 Block of Metropolitan near the airport area.

Police said Chariott Burks went to Derrick Taylor's apartment to pick up their three-year-old daughter and got upset when Taylor asked her why she was late.

Witnesses say Burks put her car in reverse and tried to hit Taylor's fiance with her car and then drove around a dumpster to try to hit Taylor.

Taylor's sister says the three-year-old was in the car with Burks at the time and says Burks came close to hitting an 11-year-0ld girl who also outside.

Danielle Taylor-Tate says Burks has tried to hit her brother before with a car and just missed him this time.

"I know she's got things going on in her life, but everyone has problems. You aren't suppose to take it out like that," said Tate.

Court records show Burks was arrested in 2011 for domestic violence.

She is charged with two counts of aggravated assault.
