A Hawaii woman who bills herself as a professional surfer and model was arrested Wednesday night for attempted murder connected to a road rage incident.
Honolulu police say Jill Anjuli Hansen, 30, tried to kill an elderly woman in Waikiki by running her over with a vehicle, KHON-TV reported. Charges are currently pending.
The elderly woman, identified as 73-year-old Elizabeth Conklin, was hospitalized with serious injuries, including one to her head, after the 30-year-old drove a car into her.
Hansen was about to hit the woman a second time before a maintenance worker at the scene said he picked up a crowbar and smashed her windshield, causing the woman to abandon her car and flee the scene.

“It was pretty shocking,” neighbor Don Persons, who knows Conklin, said of the news.
Hours after the Wednesday morning incident, Hansen then turned to Facebook to post about how she had just been inducted as a professional surfer.
“I have worked SOOOO [sic] hard to get to today,” she wrote in the post.
According to a local newspaper, this isn’t Hansen’s first run in with the law.
She was ordered to undergo a mental evaluation and is grappling with another assault case. Her father also has a restraining order against her, Hawaii News Now reported.
