If you're so pissed about a dude that you follow him in a car, try to run him off the road and ram him when he stops, remember one thing: Take your kid along for the ride.

That's what Christie Loraine Marshall, 32, did, according to cops and the Galveston County Daily News.

They say Marshall got into a fight at a Texas City house with a man over whether he had her credit card.

The classic description:

The man then left the house with a 4-year-old in his car and drove north on state Highway 3. Marshall loaded a 3-month-old baby in her vehicle, followed the man and tried to run him off the road several times.

When he stopped at a light, cops said, she rammed him from behind.

On the plus side, both kids were strapped in child seats. On the minus side, you're driving like an idiot with a kid in the car.

Jail records show Marshall has been booked on a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She is still in jail with a bond of $40,000.
