Pennsylvania woman charged with DUI after a Saturday misadventure sees her speeding, fleeing arrest, a physical confrontation with cops, including biting sergeant in leg.
Also making her tabloid debut is Pennsylvania woman, Jessica Hayes who was booked with a volley of charges over the weekend following a drunken misadventure which included her driving under the influence, fleeing police and biting one cop in the leg. Shall we?
It all started when a New Jersey State Park police officer tried to stop Hayes, 30, on Saturday after she was observed leaving Island Beach State Park going over 70 mph in a 35 mph zone.
The officer said Hayes ‘ignored commands to pull over and continued out of Island Beach State Park at a high rate of speed,’ according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.
Prosecutors said she continued to drive ‘reaching speeds of 60 miles per hour while weaving in and out of traffic.’ The officer decided to stop pursuing her ‘due to the substantial risk of injury to the public.’
But there was more to come.
Part 2 of my amazing misadventure:
Later that day, Seaside Park Police were called to a bank after a woman, identified as Hayes, was acting suspiciously. The New Jersey State Park police officer arrived at the bank – informed responding officers that he’d tried to pull her over earlier that day.
Hayes, of Bensalem, Pennsylvania, a half hour from Philadelphia, allegedly ‘displayed signs of intoxication’ when she was questioned at the bank, as cops conducted field sobriety tests.
However, once police tried to arrest her, Hayes allegedly attacked two Seaside Park officers, causing minor injuries, along with biting a New Jersey State Park police sergeant on his leg.
Prosecutors said it seemed the injured officers ‘will all be OK.’
‘We are lucky no one else was injured by her reckless behavior on a very busy Saturday at the Jersey Shore,’ Ocean County prosecutor Bradley Billhimer said.
