The suspect, identified as Angela Hendricks, was wanted for numerous failure to comply incidents. Hendricks has fled from police multiple times in the past when officers have attempted to stop her, the spokesperson said.

Officers located the vehicle near West Stroop Road and Lamme Road, and they attempted a vehicle intercept, a maneuver to keep Hendricks from being able to flee again.

Hendricks proceeded to ram two KPD cruisers and continued to flee in her vehicle, according to the spokesperson. Two other officers not in the intercept continued in pursuit.

Stop sticks were deployed by Miami Township police near the intersection of Mad River Road and Fox Run.

As the vehicle slowed due to the stop-sticks, an officer was able to conduct a successful PIT (Precision Immobilization Technique) maneuver to terminate the pursuit, the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said Hendricks was taken into custody, and charges are pending for failure to comply, felony Possession of drugs, and felonious assault, along with three misdemeanor warrants through KPD and a felony warrant through Adult Parole Authority.

Neither Hendricks nor any of the officers were injured.

Hendricks is currently booked in the Montgomery County Jail, according to online jail records.
