A Lincoln woman is arrested after police say she attacked her ex–boyfriend.

Lincoln police say 31–year–old Darlene Mason confronted her ex–boyfriend in a parking lot near 46th and Vine St. Wednesday evening. He was there working on a car with a friend.

Officers say she hit him with a crowbar, and tried to stab him with a screwdriver.

When officers arrived, they say she sped away in her car. Officers ended the pursuit due to the woman's excessive speed.

Lincoln police say Mason later turned herself in. She was cited for terroristic threats, use of a weapon, criminal mischief, 3rd degree domestic assault, fleeing to avoid arrest and reckless driving.
