A suspect in a fight and hit-and-run in Auburn Hills last weekend turned herself in Wednesday afternoon, according to Auburn Hills police.

Porsha Marcedees Pierce was arraigned before Magistrate Marie A. Soma on Wednesday and a plea of not guilty was entered on her behalf for charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and assault with a dangerous weapon.

The 23-year-old Pontiac woman was placed in the Oakland County Jail with bond set at $5,000 cash.

Auburn Hills police were seeking Pierce for allegedly striking another woman with a vehicle following an altercation last weekend inside a T.G.I. Friday’s in Auburn Hills.

According to police, Pierce confronted the victim in the restaurant, “spraying her with mace and getting into a physical altercation,” around 12:24 a.m. Saturday at the restaurant on Squirrel Road. Police say Pierce waited outside of the restaurant and allegedly hit the victim with a 2006 Ford 4-door before fleeing the scene.

The victim, 25, of Pontiac was taken to McLaren Oakland Hospital for treatment, but has since been released and is expected to make a full recovery, police said.
