Police: Woman Tried to Ram Officer’s Cruiser During Pursuit

Updated on 3/25/22 — The attempted malicious wounding charges were dropped in this case. The defendant pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor eluding charge and received two years of probation, according to court records.

A woman tried to ram a police cruiser during a vehicle pursuit last night near Crystal City, according to Arlington County Police.

The incident happened around 11:30 p.m. Police say [redacted], 42, was driving down S. Eads Street with her headlights off when police tried to pull her over.

“The suspect continued to travel south on S. Eads Street into the dead end south of Glebe Road,” said ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage. “At that time, the officers attempted to block the road to conduct their stop. The suspect then conducted a multi-point turn and accelerated her vehicle directly toward one of the officers. The officer successfully reversed their vehicle to avoid the suspect’s attempted collision.”

“Officers initiated a pursuit of the suspect for Attempted Malicious Wounding on [a law enforcement officer],” Savage continued. “During the pursuit, officers attempted to stop the vehicle and twice the suspect displayed no intention of stopping and continued to operate the vehicle directly towards the officers.”

Eventually, [redacted] was taken into custody at the intersection of Eads and 23rd Street S. “without further incident.”

Upon arrival, the officers observed a vehicle matching the description provided by the reporting party leaving the area. The vehicle was traveling without its lights on and the officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop by engaging their emergency equipment. The driver refused to stop their vehicle and allegedly attempted to strike the officer’s marked police vehicle. Following a vehicle pursuit in which the driver operated with disregard for traffic control and again attempted to strike the police vehicles, the driver was taken into custody without further incident.
