CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A woman has been arrested for an incident on Interstate 75 where she drove with a man on the hood of her car.

Ebony Martin, 28, is charged with aggravated vehicular assault.

The incident happened Dec. 23 on I-75 between I-74 and the Mitchell Avenue exit and shut down the interstate for three hours.

Police say Martin was drunk and involved in a verbal dispute with her passenger, Kwame Afoh Ankomah, 32.
