Report of fake cash at Waffle House leads to police shooting

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (AP) — Police fired their guns when a woman hit two officers with her car as she fled possible arrest on suspicion that she used counterfeit cash at a Waffle House in Tennessee.

Police in the Memphis suburb of Germantown said 23-year-old Chelse Chambers hit an officer’s vehicle with her Nissan Altima and then struck him with her car as he got out. Police said she pinned another officer against a vehicle as she tried to elude police Tuesday.

Officers fired their guns during the confrontation. No one was hit by bullets. Chambers was arrested when officers entered her car.

Four officers were treated at a hospital and released.

Chambers faces charges including aggravated assault, forgery and evading arrest. Online records did not show if she had been officially charged Wednesday afternoon.
