Woman leads police on wild chase says she was 'late for work'

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A woman in Ohio went to great lengths on Monday to avoid getting pulled over by troopers.

Video shows Imani Edwards smashed into multiple police cars, nearly hit several officers in the process and sped through an intersection with a red light.

WEWS-TV reports, even with the back end of her SUV smashed-in, she still didn't stop.

The reason for the chase? She says she was late for work.

Ohio State Troopers were chasing the vehicle after the woman behind the wheel fled a traffic stop. Soon, Newburgh Heights police joined in the chase.

At one point, law enforcement thought they had her boxed in on the interstate. But in dash cam video you can see the driver made a desperate and dangerous move.

Even as an officer stood right outside her driver's side window with his gun drawn, she hit the gas, nearly running down police and ramming two Newburgh Heights police cruisers during her dangerous escape.

Despite the dangerous situation, that officer does not fire his gun.

"The officers with their weapons drawn, they held very good restraint in my opinion, because their lives were at stake. She almost ran them over.(snip)

Troopers finally stopped her by forcing her onto a curb into a pole and she could not go forward anymore.

She was arrested, then had to explain herself.

When an officer asked her what she was doing, Edwards said, "I was on my way to work."

Newburgh Heights police showed WEWS-TV the damage done to those two cruisers that were rammed.

All of this mess started because of window tint and a registration violation.

Edwards has been charged with felonious assault and failure to comply.

In L.A. the local news covers these kind of chases live from helicopters.

A cop pulls over a carload of nuns.

Cop: “Sister, this is a 65 MPH highway — why are you going so slow? “

Sister: “Sir, I saw a lot of signs that said 22, not 65. “

Cop: “Oh sister, that’s not the speed limit, that’s the name of the highway you’re on!

Sister: Oh! Silly me! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll be more careful.

At this point the cop looks in the backseat where the other nuns are shaking and trembling.

Cop: Excuse me, Sister, what’s wrong with your friends back there? They’re shaking something terrible.

Sister: Oh, we just got off of highway 119.”

I would say it was a complete lack of ability to connect actions in the here and now with consequences in the future. But her comment about being late for work belies that notion. The alternative - just plain narcissistic entitlement.

Saw the “name” Imani and drew the obvious conclusion.
