REDMOND, OR -- A Culver woman was arrested in Redmond by officers with guns drawn, Tuesday morning. Redmond Police were first called to a car dealership on South Highway 97, just before 10:30 a.m., on a report of a woman intentionally ramming vehicles and nearly hitting two employees. The suspect left before police arrived but, after several calls from the public, they caught up with her in the Petco parking lot, on the north end of town. Vanessa Hancock was arrested during a high-risk traffic stop.
Investigators say the 37-year-old damaged six vehicles at the dealership, as well as her own 2011 Kia Sportage (right). She reportedly littered car parts along the road as she drove north. Police say she was upset with employees at the dealership over an ongoing civil dispute.
Hancock is charged with Reckless Driving, Recklessly Endangering Another, Criminal Mischief and Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver Involved in an Accident. Redmond Police encourage those involved in civil disputes to seek a legal resolution.
