VIDEO: Woman ramming squad car escapes police

Woman ramming squad car - Sheriff's video still

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee woman faces felony charges after authorities say she rammed her vehicle into a squad car and then drove away to escape a traffic stop.

23-year-old Kevina Freeman was charged Monday in the incident that was captured on dashcam video released by the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the newspaper, Freeman was pulled over May 15 on suspicion of speeding.

The video shows a car stopped alongside an interstate. It suddenly reverses, plows into a squad car, then pulls away.

As two sheriff’s deputies were standing outside her car, with doors open, she threw the vehicle in reverse, ramming into the squad car behind her. Both deputies, as well as Freeman’s mother, were injured as they were thrown to the ground.

Freeman is charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of harming someone while fleeing police and one count of damaging property while fleeing.

Jail records show Freeman remains in custody, and it wasn’t immediately clear if she has an attorney.
