A South African national was arrested after she allegedly rammed her car into a park employee at Eaton Canyon Nature Center yesterday afternoon.An employee at the park in Pasadena told Arune Kavaliauskaite, 28, three times that she needed to put a leash on her dog while she was at the park, but she wouldn't listen. The park employee was nervous enough about the situation to call for back-up and take a picture of the woman.

Kavaliauskaite didn't handle the direction well, because she got so angry that she drove straight into the park employee, injuring the employee's leg. Sheriff's deputies arrested her and she was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. She's being held at Crescenta Valley station in lieu of $30,000 bail.
