A woman is facing nearly two dozen charges, including DUI and felony theft, after putting up a fight with Tennessee deputies, leading them on a pursuit, stealing a patrol car and crashing into another patrol vehicle in Dickson County, authorities say.
A Dickson County deputy first tried to stop Jennifer Cunningham, 27, for having a brake light out, WKRN reports.
“She quickly pulled in a driveway backed up hit a mailbox and took off from the deputy at that point,” Sgt. Jennifer Caruthers explained.
A short, slow pursuit ensued until Cunningham’s car became disabled.
Cunningham was taken into custody, handcuffed, and put in the rear of a deputy's vehicle. But she managed to get to the front seat and tried to drive away, deputies say.
She reportedly rammed another deputy's vehicle. Then she was arrested.
Deputies say Cunningham also tried to bring drugs into the jail.
