A Hopkinsville couple was arrested Tuesday evening for allegedly stealing soft drinks from a Dollar General store and nearly running over a pregnant clerk with a vehicle.
Charged with second degree robbery and first degree wanton endangerment are 37-year old Curry Hopper and 33-year old Scarlett Hopper of Hopkinsville. The arrest warrants say the couple loaded several cases of sodas into a shopping cart outside of a Dollar General on June 5, when the clerk confronted them.
The clerk told them she was only getting their license plate number and that's when Curry Hopper allegedly backed out of the spot quickly, nearly running the pregnant woman over. He then allegedly swung around quickly and nearly ran over the woman again.
The warrant for Scarlett Hopper says she allegedly served as a “lookout” and told her husband when the clerk was coming. Both were lodged in the Christian County Jail on $5,000 bond.
