Video: Pregnant Woman Runs Purse Thief Over with Car

A mom to be in North Carolina took on some street justice when a man allegedly tried to steal her purse.

Christine Braswell ran the man over with her SUV in a Walmart parking lot. 

She says she caught Robert Raines rummaging through her vehicle, when he ran off with her purse is when she jumped into action.

"He was with my purse and he took off and I took off after him. Me being five months pregnant, I chased a little ways then come back, jumped in the car, threw it in gear and come across the curb and ran him over. I was not going to let him get away with it. It's not right, it's not fair."

Raines was later taken to a hospital after receiving only minor bumps and bruises from the impact.

He is being charged with felony breaking and entering, larceny and misdemeanor damage to property.

Braswell was also taken in to custody and is being charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.
