Woman charged with fleeing police
STONE MOUNTAIN - A Snellville woman was arrested Saturday after allegedly attempting to flee from a police traffic stop.
An officer signaled for a woman driving a red Ford Taurus with a broken tail light at Annistown Road and Juhan Road to pull over, but instead the driver reportedly sped up to in excess of 100 mph. In the ensuing chase, the Taurus struck a median and two tires went flat. However, the woman continued driving and the Taurus strayed into oncoming traffic several times.
Finally the Taurus struck a concrete median and spun out, coming to a stop in front of a police patrol car. The driver then accelerated and rammed the officer's car head-on.
Police were able to block in the car and pull 34-year-old Jennifer Lynn Lewis out when she refused to exit. Lewis told officers she fled because she was driving on a suspended license. She was charged with several traffic-related offenses.
Men fire on car, shattering window
NORCROSS - A group of six unidentified Hispanic men traveling in a black Ford Ranger on Saturday fired gunshots at another vehicle on Singleton Road.
The victim told police he was traveling south on Singleton Road near Indian Trail Road at 1 p.m. when he honked his horn at a slow-moving truck in front of him. A black Ford Ranger then pulled up beside the victim's car and an occupant fired three gunshots at the victim from a rear window, according to a police report.
The bullets shattered the rear windshield of the victim's car. The black truck sped away southbound on Singleton Road, the police report stated.
