Pro surfer/model charged with attempted murder after road rage attack: Report

A 30-year-old professional surfer and model has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly following an elderly woman back to her apartment and running her down as part of a road rage incident.

Jill Hansen was formerly charged around on Friday in Hawaii following the gnarly noontime attack in Waikiki, Honolulu on Wednesday, Hawaii News Now reported.

A witness, Chris Khory, has told police that he stopped Hansen from hitting the 73-year-old victim, identified as Elizabeth Conklin, a second time by smashing her back window with a crowbar.

Khory said after knocking Conklin down Hansen got out of her Volkswagen sedan, looked at her, got back in the car and put it in reverse.

After that final touch, she got out and fled, leaving behind her car. Police used it to track her down, arresting Hansen six hours later in the Manoa area.

Conklin was hospitalized in serious condition with cuts, bruises and a head injury, emergency officials said.

This is not the first time Hansen has gone over the falls, said police.

She has a pending assault case and in a separate case was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.

There is also an active restraining order filed by her father.
