Woman Driving On Suspended License Arrested For DUI After Crashing Into Police Vehicles

Comments (1)

A woman from Tucson, Arizona who was driving on a license suspended for a DUI conviction was arrested on Monday, August 11 for aggravated DUI after she led police on a chase shortly before 3:30 a.m., according to police.

 

Police say 22-year-old Margarita Rodriguez was arrested on four counts of felony endangerment and one count of felony criminal damage after she drove her vehicle toward Tucson police and struck two squad cars.

 

On Monday, Rodriguez was released to the supervision of the Superior Court’s Pretrial Services program at an initial court appearance.

 

According to police spokesman Officer Charles Ryzdak, they had been attempting to stop a female driver for speeding. After she stopped her vehicle, she made a U-turn and sped in the direction of the police vehicle, driving onto the Interstate.

 

Ryzdak said that road spikes were deployed to puncture the woman’s tires, but she continued to drive, despite four flats, until she finally lost control of the vehicle and struck a barrier.

 

According to Ryzdak, two officers parked behind her, but she reversed her vehicle and struck the squad cars.

 

There were no details provided about her 16-year-old passenger.

I AM THE ONE WHO DID THIS. I WAS STUPID AND IGNORANT FOR IT. I ACCEPTED MY SENTENCE AND AM DOING TIME FOR IT. I APOLIGIZED TO EVERYONE INVOVED IN THIS INCIDENT AND AM VERY ASHAMED.
