Woman who accused man of road rage attack pleads guilty

BEND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon woman who accused a driver of attacking her and her passenger has pleaded guilty for her role in an incident that left another driver with a broken jaw.

The Bulletin reports 35-year-old Megan Stackhouse pleaded guilty Monday to assault for punching Cheryl Norton of Bend after a traffic crash in May.

Norton told The Bulletin that Stackhouse hopped a curb and hit Norton’s vehicle. Stackhouse reportedly refused to provide insurance information and angrily confronted Norton.

Under the proposed deal, Stackhouse would serve four days in jail and do 30 hours of community service.

Stackhouse and her partner also made the news after they told police they were victims of a June 1 violent road rage attack.

However, prosecutors dismissed charges against the man in that case, saying the women lacked credibility and their injuries didn’t match up with their story.
