The woman who was charged with a hit-and-run involving a Chick-fil-A employee in the restaurant’s cow costume has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

City spokeswoman Diana Klink said at the time that Boone stopped briefly and inquired after the victim but then drove away.

The employee’s leg was injured.

“In cases where a driver knows they have injured someone, they are required to report their name, address, driver’s license number and vehicle registration number to the Police Department or to the person struck and injured and provide reasonable aid,” Klink said at the time.

Boone was set for a trial on Thursday but then decided to plead to misdemeanor hit and run. She initially had been charged with felony hit and run.

She declined to comment after her court appearance. Her sentencing date is set for Oct. 21.
