According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Jennifer Stitt had been threatened with a trespassing charge and ejected from the Cannery casino.

North Las Vegas Police spokesman Eric Leavitt told the Reno Gazette Journal that Stitt, 50, was asked initially to leave the premises due to "disorderly conduct" and the trespassing allegations arose when she refused to exit.

"She didn't agree with the trespassing," Leavitt said.

Although Stitt begrudgingly left the Cannery, she immediately got behind the wheel of her RV and slammed through the casino's front door, the newspaper reported.

She now faces an attempted murder charge for running over a 66-year-old custodian in her path. Although critically injured, the man is expected to recover, and Stitt is being held on $100,000 bail, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

"We are obviously very concerned for the welfare of our team member," David Strow, vice president of corporate communications for Boyd Gaming, which owns the Cannery, told the newspaper, adding, "We are staying in touch with the team member and their family to make sure they get the best of care."
