Around 1 p.m., a West SAFFE unit was supporting another SAPD unit when they came across the suspect acting belligerently in the 3600 block of Fredericksburg Road, according to officials. The officers asked the suspect to leave, which she did, but she subsequently returned and proceeded to act belligerently.

Police attempted to pull the suspect aside after observing her committing traffic offenses. According to officials, the suspect then purposefully crashed into many cars, including patrol cars, before fleeing the scene.

Police followed the suspect’s automobile for a safe distance before apprehending her at an Exxon in the 2600 block of South Zarzamora Drive. The woman was apprehended and is now facing accusations of aggravated assault on a peace officer and fleeing arrest.

According to an SAPD official, this was neither a chase nor a pursuit, but rather a “follow.” Police stated that they are also looking into other suspected offenses committed by the suspect, but no information was provided as to whether this was an alleged bank robbery.
