ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico woman is facing charges after police said she tried to free her boyfriend from a patrol car by trying to crash into it.
KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports 26-year-old Tommianne Patten chased an Albuquerque patrol car on Monday following her boyfriend’s arrest for domestic violence.
According to police, Patten drove up behind the police car and tried to ram it on Interstate 40.
Authorities say the officer tried to flee Patten, but she pulled up alongside him and tried to crash into him again.
Police say Patten later crashed into an unmarked police vehicle with an officer inside at Albuquerque police headquarters.
She faces aggravated assault on a peace officer with a deadly weapon charge.
It was not known if she had an attorney.
