STAMFORD - The 65-year-old Stamford woman, arrested for running over her 72-year-old boyfriend, has been given a chance to wipe the criminal charges from her record.

Police say Heather Harris hit her boyfriend with her car outside the Bulls Head Diner in Stamford after they fought about how he cared for her pet tortoise.

Her attorney says if Harris takes part in a program for the mentally ill and sees a therapist twice a week for the next two years, her record will be expunged.
