WASHINGTON — An intoxicated woman rammed a police vehicle during a pursuit, leaving a police officer injured on Sunday in Pasadena, Maryland, Anne Arundel County police said.
Christina Brooke Hall, 33, of Glen Burnie, Maryland, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault on a police officer, reckless endangerment, DUI and numerous traffic-related offenses.
Hall smelled of alcohol and appeared to be intoxicated during a traffic stop in a Rite Aid parking lot on the 3400 block of Mountain Road, according to Anne Arundel County police. They had been on the lookout for an intoxicated driver traveling toward Edwin Raynor Boulevard around 7:45 p.m.
When asked to exit the vehicle, Hall accelerated out of the parking lot onto Edwin Raynor Boulevard. Officers pursued her to the 8300 block of Country Grove, which is a dead-end street.
Hall then intentionally rammed the pursuing officer’s vehicle as the officer was attempting to get out, police say. His car door struck him, causing injuries to his face and mouth.
Hall continued onto Edwin Raynor Boulevard until her vehicle became inoperable and came to a stop in the area of Jumpers Hole Road and Obrecht Road, where she was arrested.
The injured officer is a 23-year veteran of the department. He was transported to the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, where he was treated and released.
