Woman faces DUI after police chase ends with shots fired

Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs can sometimes lead to criminal charges. One woman who was doing ice recently had an encounter with police that included allegedly stealing an SUV, plowing into a police vehicle and being tased.

The 41-year-old woman's ordeal started when police officers received a report about a stolen vehicle. The woman didn't want to stop for police officers. She led them on a chase. When she entered a parking lot, an officer tried to put down a spike strip. He didn't have time to do that. Instead, he had to take cover behind his vehicle because the woman was barreling toward him in the stolen SUV.

He fired two shots at the vehicle. Neither shot hit the woman and she continued to drive toward the officer. She struck the officer with the SUV. He was able to get up after tumbling to the ground.

Officers surrounded the woman's vehicle. She then stood up with her head out of the sunroof of the SUV and began to shout at officers, including claims that she was God. They had to use the Taser to shock her. That caused her to fall into the SUV, at which time officers were able to subdue her.

The woman was booked into an Oklahoma jail for a host of criminal charges that included driving under the influence of drugs, assault and battery with a deadly weapon, possession of a stolen vehicle and other charges.

Even though the woman admitted to doing "a line of ice" the night before the incident, she still has the right to present a defense. Those facing criminal charges should ensure they know all the options they have for a defense.
