A Woodbridge woman was arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning for allegedly pouring gasoline on the face of an acquaintance while filling up her tank at a Shell gasoline station.

Prince William County Police officers responded to the service station at 13313 Occoquan Road in Woodbridge around 4:20 am. The victim, a 34-year-old woman, told police she was pumping gas when she got into a verbal altercation with 39-year-old Lashawn Dernette Johnson.
