Police in Hawaii have arrested 30-year-old professional surfer Jill Hansen after they say she followed an elderly woman back to her condo on Wednesday night, hit her with her car and then tried to back into the woman again before fleeing the scene. Police said they tracked Hansen down and arrested her six hours after the attack.

Police charged Hansen with attempted murder after hitting 73-year-old Elizabeth Conklin in the parking garage of her condominium community on Wednesday morning, according to Radar Online.
