On December 4, Deputy R.O. Mills was finishing up a traffic stop on Carolina Beach Road near Golden Road when he was hit. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

In court, prosecutors say Amdur left the scene and drove to Myrtle Beach. She’s also accused of attempting to disguise her vehicle.

The judge denied Amdur’s request to lower her $250,000 bond.

Her next court date is January 21.
