BEND, OR -- A 39-year-old woman is accused of eluding Bend Police, crashing into a yard and assaulting officers as they tried to arrest her, Wednesday. An officer tried to pull Kristen Adams over, at about 10:45 a.m., knowing she was wanted in connection with a Redmond case. She sped off and wasn’t pursued due to safety concerns.
A few minutes later, a man reported a car had crashed into his yard on Eastview Drive, and was now stuck with a woman inside. Dispatchers ran the license plate and discovered the vehicle matched the description of Adams' car. Officers arrived and attempted to take Adams into custody. She became combative and fought with them, injuring two officers.
She was taken to the hospital for evaluation of minor injuries sustained in the crash. Adams faces several charges including Reckless Driving, Assault on a Public Safety Officer and Resisting Arrest.
