This Lady Mowed Down a Police Officer With Her Car During Traffic Stop
Last Friday, an officer from the Auburn Hills, Michigan police department pulled over 22-year-old Brianna Smart, whom he suspected was driving with a suspended license. According to newly-released dash cam video and transcripts of a traffic stop, Officer Martin Mikolajczak turned on his lights and following a Chrysler Concord to a BP gas station around 2:00 a.m. October 23. He asks Brianna for her license and she told him it's at her friend's home. The officer then asked her to step out of the vehicle. She exits the vehicle while holding her cell phone, which is on speaker with a man on the other line. The officer asks her to leave her phone inside. She refused to leave the phone in the car, telling the ma: "I don't even know why he pulled me over, he didn't tell me why. What was the reason you pulled me over?" The officer then reach for the phone and Brianna tells him: "Excuse me, don't touch me, sir." He then proceeds to put her hands behind her back in an attempt to arrest her. "He's putting hands on me, Jaylen," she tells the man on the phone. "Jaylen, he's touching me. He's hurt…he's hitting me. Jaylen, you need to come up here." The video doesn't show -- nor is there any evidence to suggest -- the officer hitting her. Brianna was able to get back into the vehicle and after a brief physical struggle, she backs out at a high rate of speed, hitting Officer Mikolajczak and knocking him to the ground. She then speeds off. (The officer was not seriously injured.) The vehicle was located about half a mile away. Brianna was arrested later that morning and charged with fleeing and eluding and resisting and assaulting a police officer. She remains jailed on $75,000 bond.
