A Springfield woman who allegedly almost hit Springfield police officers with a car while trying to flee was indicted.
Jamiee Jackson, 32, was indicted in Clark County Common Pleas Court on charges of failure to comply order or signal of a police officer and obstructing official business.
Springfield police began their investigation June 15 when they were called to a home on Springmont Avenue in reference to unwanted people inside, according to an affidavit.
While in front of the residence, “a female driver, who was later found to be Jamiee Jackson, was entering a silver Chevy SUV,” the affidavit says. “(An officer) yelled at her several times to stop the vehicle and was even told to stop prior to entering the vehicle after identifying himself as police.”
Officers continued to tell her to stop, the affidavit says, but Jackson started her car and accelerated, the affidavit says.
“Ms. Jackson accelerated and drove at a high rate of speed at (the officers) causing (one) to draw his service weapon on the vehicle as he and (the other officer) quickly had to move out of the way to keep from being struck. Officers continued to scream for Ms. Jackson to stop however she did not comply.”
Officers were able to later catch up to her, the affidavit says, and she was arrested.
