There is a part of me feeling sorry for this driver and for her regard for safety in stopping at lights, but since we once had our car hit by an uninsured driver with a suspended license and had to pay 100% of the repairs, I don’t want them getting off easy either; the judge needs to go by the book if for no other reason than to send a message not to drive under suspension or to resist arrest. ZZZAPPP – oh … but remember “don’t tase me bro!”
CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati police say a speeding driver tried to flee arrest while obeying red lights.
Police say a 26-year-old woman was going 78 mph in a 55 mph zone early Friday on Interstate 75 when an officer tried to pull her over. Police say she exited the highway to drive home.
Police say that when the woman reached local streets, she drove the speed limit and stopped at red lights. They used sticks that punctured her tires, just yards from her home.
She told police she feared having her car impounded, which they did.
Police say she resisted, and they used a stun gun before charging her with resisting arrest, failing to comply with police, speeding and driving under suspension.
