Woman facing charges after allegedly trying to run over officer
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City woman is facing numerous charges after police say she allegedly tried to run over an officer.
Police were called to an apartment complex after a man reported that 26-year-old Kreidaesha Topaz Clay was harassing him and would not leave.
When officers arrived, they learned that Clay was trying to leave the complex in a black Chevy Aveo.
According to the police report, two patrol cars attempted to block her from leaving but Clay allegedly tried to run over one of the officers.
The officer jumped out of the way but was still hit in the arm with the vehicle.
According to the affidavit, if the officer had not moved out of the way, Clay would have hit him head on.
Clay stopped a short time later and was put in the back of a patrol car as she continued to thrash around.
Officials say they found a pill bottle stuffed with marijuana inside the suspect’s purse, along with an open bottle of vodka.
Authorities say Clay is facing charges of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, assault and battery on a city official, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and transporting an open container of alcohol.
