Her pants were around her ankles at that point and she feared she would be run over, Roberts told the judge.
However, her husband pulled her away from the vehicle and they rolled into a ditch area as the vehicle backed into a tree and then left, according to Roberts.
As they were lying on the ground, Phillip Roberts began shooting at the vehicle as it sped down the road towards Palo Pinto Street, the couple testified.
Neighbors, who suspected a drive-by shooting, called police and the SUV, which had several shattered windows and a flat tire, was stopped by officers on Vine Street.
A total of seven of the ten shots fired struck the vehicle, according to testimony presented Monday.
Bullets went through the back and front windshields, the back panel of the vehicle, the tire and other areas of the SUV.
One projectile missed Parker’s head by inches, breaking both the driver’s side window and the front windshield, according to the trajectory mapped by investigators.
Another bullet ended up in a cup of change in the console, while another was found to have plowed through a basket of clothes in the back seat.
Despite the close call, Parker was not injured.
The couple testified they initially wanted to call police but David Roberts decided the family would take the couple’s children and go to a friend’s house instead.
The following morning they returned home and found that their house and vehicle had been “broken into” so they called police, Cassandra Roberts testified. They were told officers had executed a search warrant at the residence and the family should come in the following day to give a statement.
Phillip Roberts brought the gun to investigators and gave a statement at that time, according to testimony.
