Report: Woman took crowbar to two cars following argument

MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A Mt. Pleasant woman is behind bars after allegedly going on a violent rampage following an argument with a family member Sunday evening.

According to an incident report, 37-year-old Amber Kliossis was in downtown Charleston with friends and family when an argument broke out between her and a family member.

While at a gas station on Calhoun Street, a witness told police Kliossis ran over the victim's foot. The two then drove a short distance down Calhoun Street where they met with a City of Charleston police officer who questioned them about the incident.

The victim told police Kliossis was initially detained for driving with a suspended license, but the officer agreed to release her into his custody.

A second altercation took place around 2 a.m. at their home in Mt. Pleasant after the victim reportedly took the suspect's car keys.

According to a Mt. Pleasant Police Department incident report, Kliossis threw a chair from the second story banister, cursed at the victim, and hit him in the face. She then threw a vase at the victim, but missed hitting him.

Police say a witness at the scene attempted to restrain the suspect, resulting in a fight between the two. The victim was able to separate the two women.

The victim told police he attempted to leave the residence, but Kliossis opened the hood of one of his vehicles and bashed in the fuse box with a crowbar, and then used the crowbar to shatter the driver side window of a vehicle he was sitting in.

The report states it was at that point that the victim called authorities. A witness at the home told police Kliossis was spotted leaving the residence around 2:08 a.m.

Mt. Pleasant police were able to locate the suspect Tuesday afternoon. She was arrested and transported to the Charleston County Detention Center.
