The witness video shows this woman’s drifting Chrysler 300 wasn’t stopping even when a police officer blocked it with his body.
Witness video shared by Ticket Dismissers earlier yesterday (May 24, 2022) shows a Chrysler 300 at a Walmart near Arundel Mills Mall in Hanover, Maryland being driven recklessly around Anne Arundel County Police.
At one point, the Chrysler 300C peels out to initiate a donut with no regard for a police officer standing in front of the 300C explicitly signaling and telling the driver to stop.
Check out the video for yourself below.
After a quick Google, according to Fox Baltimore, this incident stems from Anne Arundel County Police being called out to “reports of reckless speeding vehicles at the Walmart along Arundel Mills Circle in Hanover.”
When police arrived, a driver in a beat up Chrysler 300, now identified as a 22-year-old Baltimore woman A’Keirra Patrice Dana Smith, can be seen taunting police with her car, initiating a donut and screeching her tires in wanton disregard to what police officers are telling her to do.
The Daily Voice says Smith “intentionally drove toward and almost hit several officers before crashing into an occupied police cruiser.”
Smith and affected officers were taken to a local hospital after suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
CBS Baltimore reports that Smith “is charged with attempted first-degree murder, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and a slew of related charges in the incident.”
Other charges aside, reading about what the punishment for attempted first-degree murder in the State of Maryland carries, and it is not looking good for Smith.
According to Maryland Criminal Lawyer, “…any individual who attempts to commit first degree murder can be found guilty of a felony. The associated penalty is imprisonment of up to life.”
“Reading the room,” although Smith probably didn’t set out to actually murder a police officer on Monday by swinging her Chrysler 300 around wildly, the laws of physics still apply.
Those Chrysler 300s weigh upwards of 4,260 pounds and, when swung towards a person, carry injury-inducing and life-threatening amounts of force.
A few moments of for internet clout is never worth it if you catch an attempted first degree murder charge along with it.
