Washington Parish, LA – Police said a Mississippi woman ran over a sheriff’s deputy’s foot and pinned his arm in the window of her car after he pulled her over for speeding on Monday.
The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office (WPSO) sergeant was parked alongside Louisiana Highway 10 near the Burt Road intersection running stationary radar when he clocked an eastbound vehicle flying by at 91 miles per hour, the WPSO said in a press release on Wednesday.
The sergeant pulled the driver over after a brief pursuit and identified her as 22-year-old Amber Ann Alleman.
Alleman also had two young children with her who were properly buckled into car seats, the sheriff’s office said.
The sergeant was writing Alleman a citation for careless operation of a motor vehicle when the woman allegedly snatched his ticket book away and refused to hand it back over, according to the press release.
She ultimately threw it back at the sergeant, who ordered her to get out of her car.
Alleman ignored him and began pulling forward, running over the sergeant’s foot and stripping away the sole of his boot, according to the WCSO.
The sergeant again ordered her to stop her car and to get out, but she refused.
He tried to unlock the driver’s door by reaching into the vehicle through the open window, but Alleman allegedly rolled the window up and pinned his arm, according to the WCSO.
The sergeant was ultimately able to unlock the door and wrestled Alleman into handcuffs.
She allegedly continued to fight the sergeant as he removed her from the car.
The grandmother of the two young children in Alleman’s vehicle happened to drive by during the incident and pulled over.
The children were placed into her custody with the suspect’s consent, the WCSO confirmed.
Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal described Alleman’s behavior as “immature and irresponsible,” according to the press release.
“Driving at such a high rate of speed is bad enough,” Sheriff Seal said. “Having two minor children in the vehicle only compounds the issue. I am so grateful the children were safe and could be released to the custody of their grandmother.”
Alleman was arrested on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, criminal damage to property, aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, among other offenses.
She was booked into jail on a $40,000 bond.
