Woman charged with trying to run down cops to avoid ticket

Allstate Insurance employee Ashley Day threatened two police officers on bicycles with the Chevrolet Corvette she was driving in an effort to avoid getting traffic tickets on Saturday, authorities said today.

According to prosecutors and police reports, the 25-year-old Hazel Crest woman made an illegal U-turn in the 200 block of North Michigan Avenue while using a cell phone shortly before 3 p.m., Saturday.

But when a Chicago police bicycle officer attempted to stop Day on Michigan, she put the white 2005 Corvette she was driving into reverse nearly striking the officer, according to police reports.

A second officer tried to stop her at the intersection of Randolph Street and Stetson Avenue “using his bicycle and his person in an attempt to stop the offenders flight,” according to police reports.

But Day kept driving until she was pulled over by a third officer in the 100 block of North Lake Shore Drive.

On Sunday, a Cook County judge ordered Day held on $10,000 bail. She is charged with two felony counts of aggravated assault of a police officer with a vehicle and fleeing police.

She was also ticketed for driving while using a cell phone and making an illegal U-turn.

A 25-year-old Chicago-area woman was charged Saturday after allegedly attempting to run down a bicycle police officer with her car after the officer signaled to pull her over.

Ashley Day, of Hazel Crest, Ill., caught the officer's attention after she allegedly made an illegal U-turn near the intersection of Randolph and Stetson in Chicago's Loop while talking on a cell phone Saturday afternoon, the Chicago Tribune reports.

When a bicycle officer tried to pull her over, Day allegedly put her car into reverse and nearly struck the officer. When a second bicycle officer also attempted to pull her over, the woman reportedly tried to run that officer down as well, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Day was taken into custody when she was finally stopped in the 100 block of North Lake Shore Drive, NBC Chicago reports. Her charges include two counts of felony aggravated assault while operating a motor vehicle against a police officer, the traffic violations and one count of misdemeanor fleeing or attempting to elude police. A judge set her bail at $10,000 Sunday.
