Norton told The Bulletin that Stackhouse hopped a curb and hit Norton's vehicle. Stackhouse reportedly refused to provide insurance information and angrily confronted Norton.

Under the proposed deal, Stackhouse would serve four days in jail and do 30 hours of community service.

Stackhouse and her partner also made the news after they told police they were victims of a June 1 violent road rage attack.

However, prosecutors dismissed charges against the man in that case, saying the women lacked credibility and their injuries didn't match up with their story.
