FARGO — A woman accused of running over a local chef in downtown Fargo failed to appear in court Monday, July 13, and now finding her may be left to bounty hunters, according to the Cass County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Pryscilla Shantyl Littleswallow, 31, reportedly ran over Joe Swegarden at about 2 a.m. Aug. 12, 2018, according to court documents. She pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of aggravated reckless driving, but was scheduled to change her plea Monday.
Littleswallow’s $10,000 cash bail has been revoked, and the Cass County State’s Attorney's Office and even her own lawyer, Mark Beauchene, do not know where she is.
“No doubt the bail bondsman will send his people out, or contract with a bounty hunter to try and track her down. And we know from public records that she’s failed to show up in court before,” Assistant Cass County State’s Attorney Ryan Younggren said after the hearing.
According to the 2019 incident report, “Witnesses stated the driver accelerated, struck Joe, causing him to fall and go under the vehicle. Witnesses stated the driver reversed over Joe, got out of her vehicle and looked at Joe on the ground. Multiple witnesses stated the suspect said ‘It’s not my fault,’ then got back into her vehicle and fled."
