Woman charged with ramming police car, DUI after Pasadena chase

A woman has been charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault on a police officer, reckless endangerment, DUI and multiple traffic-related offenses after police said she intentionally hit an Anne Arundel County police car Sunday night in Pasadena.

Police say Christina Hall, 33, of Glen Burnie, was pulled over after an alert for a possibly drunk driver on Mountain Road was broadcast around 7:45 p.m. on Sunday.

Hall was pulled over for a traffic stop in the parking lot of the Rite Aid on Mountain Road when police said she “smelled of alcohol and appeared to be intoxicated.” Police said that when Hall was asked to exit her car, she sped out of the parking lot onto Edwin Raynor Boulevard.

According to police, officers chased Hall to the 8300 block of Country Grove, when she turned her car around and “intentionally rammed” a marked Anne Arundel County police vehicle while the officer was getting out.

Police say Hall continued driving with officers in pursuit on Edwin Raynor Boulevard until her vehicle finally came to a stop near Jumpers Hole Road and Obrecht Road, where she was arrested.

Police say the officer Hall allegedly struck was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries to his face and mouth.
