Fairview PD Incident Report Details – October (1-24) 2018

Incident 18141017 10/22/2018 at about 6:27 a.m. 5200 S Central Expressway. Offenses: Possess controlled substance, assault police officer/judge and DWI (first). Suspect description: 31-year-old female, Little Elm resident. Victims are listed as society and a Fairview police officer. Seized item: One ounce of crack cocaine which was in a small Ziploc bag.

Information from the Fairview police officer running stationary radar on Northbound U.S. 75 at the 4800 block: I observed a vehicle approach me at a high rate of speed. The vehicle’s speed was confirmed by radar at 93 mph in a 70 mph zone. The vehicle, a white passenger car (later identified as a 2018 Honda Civic), passed me.

I proceeded by turning on my patrol unit's overhead emergency lights as I approached the vehicle from behind to perform a traffic stop. While I was behind the vehicle, I observed the vehicle

weaving within its lane. After we passed Sam Rayburn Tollway, I turned off my emergency lights due to the lack of a safe location to conduct a traffic stop. Once north of the Eldorado Parkway overpass, I reactivated my overhead emergency lights in an effort to have the vehicle take the Louisiana /Virginia Frontage Road exit. The vehicle took the exit and continued to travel on the service road. The driver of the vehicle was putting her arm out of the driver window in a manner that looked to me that she was signaling she was going to pull over. We passed several suitable areas for the driver to pull over and stop. She finally pulled over at the Whataburger parking lot. As I pulled in behind the suspect vehicle, an agent with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement pulled into the Whataburger parking lot to provide cover for me while I contacted the driver.

I contacted the driver. While contacting the suspect, I detected a strong odor of alcohol emanating from within the vehicle. I had asked the suspect for her driver license several times and she responded by repeatedly inquiring, “Where and what?” in slurred speech. Along with her slurred speech, she was unable to comprehend the questions I was asking her. I informed her that I had been following behind her vehicle for a while trying to get her to pull over for a traffic stop. I asked where she had been during the night and she informed me that she had been in Dallas. I asked where she lived and she first stated “Frisco” and then later stated “Little Elm”. I continued to ask her questions, (if she knew where she was) and she stated that she was in Plano. I asked if she knew the alphabet and she stated that she did and then stated that she was in downtown Plano.

While I continued to ask her questions, she slammed the door open and the door struck my right arm. I ordered her to step out of the vehicle. She did not comply with my repeated orders to step out of the vehicle. I then reached into the vehicle and grabbed her arm to remove her from the vehicle. The agent assisted me in removing her from the vehicle. Once we got her out of the vehicle, she refused to stand so the agent and I lifted her up and I placed her up against her vehicle. I placed her in handcuffs. Once the handcuffs were placed on the suspect, I started to walk her back to my patrol unit. She stopped in front of the unit and started to yell saying I did not read her rights to her. I continued to tell her that she needed to step back to my patrol unit. While I was holding her left arm and walking her back to the rear of my patrol unit, the suspect  used her left leg, put her leg between my legs and tripped me. We both went to the ground. While on the ground she continued to kick and scratch me. She scratched my right arm and the top of my left hand. When we went to the ground my body camera fell off into the parking lot . The agent was able to assist and help hold her legs so she was not able to kick anymore.

I advised dispatch to have my cover unit step it up and that I needed assistance due to the suspect being combative. Two Fairview officers arrived and were able to assist in getting the suspect into the back seat of my patrol unit. While trying to place her in the patrol unit she continued to kick at us and be combative. While the suspect was being combative, she knocked off both a Fairview officer and my body cameras.

A Fairview officer stated that he would do the impound paperwork. 1st Choice Towing was called out to have the vehicle removed to their impound lot. While the officer was doing the inventory on the vehicle he found a small plastic bag with a white powdery substance (it appeared to be crack cocaine) in the center console.

I went back to speak to the suspect and asked her if she knew what the substance was in the small bag. She continued to be belligerent and would not answer my questions. I attempted to read the DIC-24 (Statutory Warning) to her; however she was being too belligerent for me to continue reading it.

A Fairview officer stayed on the scene to wait for 1st Choice Towing to arrive to tow the suspect's vehicle to their impound lot.

While enroute to the jail, the suspect continued to be belligerent. She threatened that she was going to rape me. She later said that she would have my job and I was going to lose my badge. (Additional details were removed due to the explicit nature of the comment.) She spat on the partition several times, seemingly intentionally and in a fit of rage, banged her head on the partition as well. 

A Fairview officer followed me to assist me at the jail. Once we arrived at the jail, I asked for jail staff to come out to assist us, due to suspect's combativeness. As we were bringing her into the book-in area, she continued to yell and attempted to pull away from jail staff. Jail staff brought a restraining chair to place the suspect in so she could not fight or be combative. While placing the suspect in the chair, she continued to yell and she spit right into my face and eyes. She was finally restrained to the chair and a spit mask was placed on her face. While filling out the jail paperwork the suspect continued to yell and swear at the officers.

The suspect was booked into the Collin County Jail for Investigation of Driving While Intoxicated P.C. 49.04, Possession of Control Substance Penalty Group One 481.115(b), and Assault on a Peace Officer P.C. 22.01(b-2). The white powdery substance that was in the small bag was placed into the Fairview Police Department evidence room.
