LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The woman accused of attempted murder after crashing her RV into a North Las Vegas Casino and pinning an employee is expressing remorse for what happened and claims it was an accident.

Jennifer 'Jordan' Stitt, 50, spoke from the Clark County Detention Center Friday, a full week after police say she intentionally rammed the RV into the Cannery Casino at Losee and Craig Roads in North Las Vegas.

"It's terrible, I didn't see anybody in the way, I feel really remorseful for what I've done," said Stitt.

Stitt claims she was owed a few hundred dollars from the casino but there was a dispute over printed vouchers.

Stitt says she argued with casino staff before she was thrown out and 'tresspassed' from returning to the property.

"They went and got permission from HR, the human resources department, and they kept switching up their story," explained Stitt before she was removed from the property.

According to a North Las Vegas Police Report, Stitt's RV was seen driving around the parking lot just after 5 a.m. on Oct. 25.

About 15 minutes later, police say surveillance video shows Stitt's RV drive through the valet area and then make an abrupt turn toward the casino entrance.

Video shows a casino worker in the breezeway cleaning between two glass entrances when the RV crashed through, pinning him with his back against the front bumper of the RV.

Police say about 9 seconds later, the RV accelerated and traveled another 10 feet and the casino worker disappeared under the RV.

Security can be seen trying to help rescue the worker from under the RV while taking Stitt into custody.

The casino worker suffered critical injuries in the incident and is recovering.

Stitt says she was light headed from a possible propane gas leak on board her RV and lost control of the vehicle before it crashed.

"Do you regret what happened?" asked 13 Investigative Reporter Joe Bartels

"Yes, I do. I regret it and I'm asking for help for the family of the guy I ran over, I feel really bad, I regret it really bad," said Stitt.

Stitt says she suffered a brain injury during a car crash in 2005 and has issues with hyperactivity disorder and hypertension.

Stitt also tells 13 Investigates she spent time in prison for previous crimes involving money.

Stitt is now facing attempted murder charges and battery.

She scheduled for a court appearance on Nov. 13.
