West Palm Beach woman accused of assaulting people, cars over ex

A 43-year-old West Palm Beach woman was arrested Tuesday after allegedly beating her ex-boyfriend with a pole while he was at work — and then rammed his car, his co-worker and the co-worker’s car.

Mary Denise Warren has been charged with two counts of aggravated battery and two counts of damaging property. She was being held without bail late Thursday at the Palm Beach County Jail.

On Sept. 16, Warren drove to the loading area of her ex-boyfriend’s workplace on West 17th Street in a 2002 Lincoln Navigator they had shared during a nearly eight-month relationship, according to a Riviera Beach Police Department probable-cause affidavit made public Thursday.

She was upset that they had broken up about three weeks before and he had moved out of their West Palm Beach home. Making good on a promised threat to batter him at work, Warren beat him with a green pole-like object, according to the affidavit.

He dropped to a fetal position to protect himself. City Fire Rescue workers later took him to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach for a profusely bleeding head wound, the affidavit said.

A co-worker followed Warren when she drove to a nearby car shop. He saw her ram the Navigator into her ex’s black 2004 Ford utility vehicle. As she tried to drive away, the coworker approached the car to ask why Warren was doing this.

Warren drove at him and struck him with the left side of the Navigator, according to the affidavit. A Riviera Beach police officer saw that the witness’s stomach area was red and swollen.

The co-worker saw Warren then drive back to the workplace, ram into his 2008 Dodge Charger and drive away.

Warren was booked into the jail just before 7 p.m. Tuesday, records show.
