A female parolee allegedly high on drugs faces a long list of charges after after San Jose police say she rammed her car into two officers, knocking them to the ground.
Lisa Hernandez, 42, was booked Thursday evening on four counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, felony evading a peace officer, felony driving under the influence while causing injury and being high on PCP.
In statement, Sgt. Jason Dwyer said that officers were trying to arrest Hernandez on some type of vehicle code violation at 5:30 p.m. near Story road and Clemence Drive, when she sped up and struck one of the officers, knocking him to the ground. Dwyer also noted that the officer tore a hole in his pants, which caused bruising and knee abrasions. Another officer suffered some minor back inuries. Dwyer said. Both officers were treated and released from the hospital.
The officer and his partner hopped back in their car to chase her, but she had taken off, Dwyer said.
They soon spotted her, and started to chase her. Eventually, Dwyer said they boxed her in, and arrested her near Galveston Avenue.
