Judge also orders Jennifer Krejci to enter a drug treatment program

A Mentor woman who admitted to assaulting her estranged husband was sentenced to six months in jail Monday morning in .

However, Jennifer Krejci, 47, will not have serve her jail sentence until January. In the meantime, Judge John Trebets ordered her to undergo drug treatment and aftercare.

Trebets also fined her $500 and ordered her to stay away from drugs and alcohol.

Krejci .

Shortly before midnight on June 29, Krejci got a call from a family member who told her that her estranged husband was riding toward the 306 Lounge with another woman on the back of his motorcycle, Mentor Police Lt. Ken Zbiegien said at the time of her arrest..

She got in her Ford Mustang and drove until she spotted the man sitting on his motorcycle in the bar's parking lot.

A witness told police that Krejci drove over the sidewalk, narrowly missed hitting another car and crashed into the side of his bike, Zbiegien said.

The collision knocked her husband onto the ground and caused the bike to topple onto his leg.

The falling bike also struck the 35-year-old woman who was standing nearby.

Krejci then got out of her car and cussed at her estranged husband as she repeatedly stomped on his head, Zbiegien said.

She then drove away as witnesses called the police.

Her husband had injuries to his right leg and head but he refused to go to the hospital. Instead, paramedics from the Mentor Fire Department gave him medical treatment right there.

Mentor Police went to Jennifer Krejci's home where she admitted to striking his bike with her car, Zbiegien said.

The drug possession charge stems from the police finding bath salts on Krejci when they arrested her, Zbiegien added.

Hit him with her car and stomped on his head repeatedly until made to stop. Then gets 180 days (probably dropped later for comm service or probation and drug rehab). That makes me sad. I don't care what the reason you make a mistake is. You still made it and there needs to be some sort of punishment. Someone drinking and driving who kills someone else in the process still gets vehicular homicide (or should) it's a mistake yes but people still suffer from your mistakes. A soldier battling with trauma from war who self medicates still has to face punishment if they get caught with drugs... even if there is good reason they are doing so. I cannot imagine ever being able to intentionally stomp on someones head .... it's literally insane.

Bill I was so sorry to hear about this situation. But, you pretty much knew what you were walking into when you married her. Too bad it got so out of control. I hope you come out of this okay. To stomp on your head is really pathetic, she should have just punched you instead. That would be more personal.

Wow, I really feel bad for this family. It looks like there are a lot of people in your corner, Bill, but it may be the wrong time to do that and definately the wrong place, the guy asked nicely for everyone to please stop posting, If you truly care about him, then honor his wishes. And if you don't know him, maybe you should just not say anything. Isn't this family facing enough?! Why don't we all just let this family deal with it the way they need to. Geez, this is so out of hand! They have a kid who has to see this, please remember that! We all have our own problems, this is terrible. Jason, can't these posts be removed for the sake of this family and to end this crap? This all seems like it should be flagged, because it is ALL inappropriate! "There for the grace of God go I"....just saying.
