Police break 67-year-old’s car window after allegedly resisting arrest
SPENCER, Okla. – Spencer police said they had no choice but to bust out the car window of a 67-year-old woman.
Police said 67-year-old Phyllis Ouldes seemed disoriented while driving at the intersection of N.E. 50th St. and Post Rd.
Officers say they pulled her over in a church parking lot to check on her.
However, she refused to roll down her window but held up her license so the officer could identify her.
The patrolman soon learned she had outstanding felony arrest warrants in Oklahoma City.
He says he told Ouldes to get out of the car, but she refused.
Officers said 45 minutes went by and she didn’t budge.
“She was just saying, ‘No, I didn’t do anything wrong and I don’t care if you have an arrest warrant, I’m not going to jail and you’re not going to arrest me today.’ And just refused to unlock the doors,” said Allen Lane, with the Spencer Police Department.
Authorities say it’s very rare that officers have to break a window during a traffic stop.
However, this case caused them to be concerned.
Officers say Ouldes turned off her vehicle and the temperature was rising.
They also said the parking lot was filling up with church members and they didn’t want the situation to become any more dangerous.
Ouldes was arrested and is facing current and previous charges for eluding officers and resisting arrest.
