Driver in custody after trying to ram Capitol Police cruiser

Posted March 30, 2017

A woman struck a U.S. Capitol Police cruiser with a vehicle near the Capitol on Wednesday morning and was taken into custody, police said.

"At some point, Capitol police apparently fired shots, but no one was struck", the Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement.

"The driver negotiated a U-turn and fled the scene almost striking officers and striking at least one other vehicle", Malecki said.

In October 2013, 34-year-old Miriam Carey was shot and killed by law enforcement after she hit a security barrier and a Secret Service officer outside the White House, leading police on a chase that ended near the Capitol.

Officials said a woman was spotted driving erratically Wednesday morning in the area of Indepence Avenue.

The Washington Post reported that the incident happened at about 9:30 a.m. local time outside the Rayburn building on the Capitol grounds.

The driver also tried to run over several officers who were pursuing her on foot, police said.
