An Indiana woman is accused of dragging a nail salon employee with her car, because she was not satisfied with the work they did, a report said Monday.

Charley Fowler, who reportedly is a mental health therapist, was charged with felony criminal recklessness after the alleged nail salon incident. The scene that started on a $30 nail appointment unfolded Saturday, when the 28-year-old said that she was unhappy with the nails done at Diamond Nails & Spa in Valparaiso, the Times of Northwest Indiana reported.

Despite being unhappy, Fowler also rejected for the salon’s offer to reset the nails. The nail staff called the police when Fowler left the salon without paying the $30 fee. She then allegedly got into her BMW and began backing out of the parking lot.

Fowler told the police that she was planning to wait in her car while the police were on the way to the nail salon when the staff started knocking on the window. She added that she slowly drove to the nearby restaurant, according to the Times of Northwest Indiana.

Surveillance video, however, showed a different scene unfolds. The police said that the video to see Fowler back-ups in the car park for the employees reached her car. A male employee was then dragged across the lot by Fowler.

Fowler told the Times of Northwest Indiana that she has hired a lawyer and hopes that her case is dismissed. They called it “in anticipation of the allegations.”
