Woman Tries To Run Over Deputy

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - A woman admitted to trying to run over a Spokane Valley Deputy on Saturday night because she "didn't want to go back to jail."

According to a press release sent out on Monday by the Sheriff's Department, the incident began as traffic stop around 10:30pm on Saturday night. A deputy noticed a woman pass him in her car on 4th while not wearing a seatbelt. The deputy initiated a traffic stop and the woman, identified as 30-year-old Shanell Haddon, pulled into a driveway and turned her lights off. 

The deputy parked behind her and began walking towards her car when he heard the engine rev and the reverse lights come on. Deputy Craig Chamberlin said Haddon looked directly at the deputy and accelerated in reverse toward him. The deputy was able to jump out of the way, but then Haddon accelerated forward again, in what the deputy believes was another attempt to run him over. She missed and took off at a high rate of speed on 4th. 

The deputy followed Haddon and during the pursuit she eventually lost control of her car and struck a parked car. Haddon fled from the car and was caught trying to climb a fence at a home. The pursuing deputy said Haddon attempted to punch him several times, but was eventually placed into handcuffs. 

Following her arrest, Haddon told the deputy she tried to run him over because she didn't want to go back to jail and knew she had a suspended license and an unknown amount of meth. Haddon continued to tell the deputy she got scared and wasn't even sure if she had ran him over and wouldn't have stopped even if she had. Haddon also told the deputy she accelerated because she thought she was going to get shot and was hoping he would get out of the way. 

Deputies say they found small baggies and 24.4 grams of meth in Haddon's purse. 

Haddon was booked into jail for 1st Degree Assault, Hit and Run, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Eluding, Driving While License Suspended, Resisting Arrest, and Obstructing.
