A CCSO Deputy Is Involved In A Crash In Kachina Village Friday

A deputy with the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office was involved in an accident in Kachina Village Friday afternoon. Officials say at around 2:39 p.m. deputies received a call for service for a woman, who had lit her vehicle on fire and was acting strange in the parking lot of the Dollar General store. Deputies contacted the driver and she was extremely agitated. As the deputy was trying to de-escalate the situation, she put her car in reverse and backed up rapidly, knocking the deputy down in the parking lot. The driver then drove forward, nearly striking the deputy on the ground. The vehicle went north on Kachina Trail and then turned around and began to go southbound. Given the driver’s erratic and dangerous demeanor and behavior so far, the deputy decided to use his patrol vehicle to stop the suspect vehicle, which resulted in a collision. The driver still refused to get out of the vehicle and cooperate. Another deputy arrived on the scene to assist. After a short struggle, one of the deputies tasered the woman and took her into custody. Authorities say there was evidence on the bumper that it had been on fire recently. The woman was taken to Flagstaff Medical Center for minor injuries, while the deputy at Dollar General was treated and released with minor injuries. Charges against the woman are pending.
