Police were called to a hit and run. One car had rear-ended another and driven off.
Police were able to catch up with the suspect who was clearly trying to make attempts to outrun police by not stopping and making sudden turns.
Police ran the license plate on the car and found the owner. Police knew her from previous encounters.
She told police she left her car at a friend of a friend’s house that morning so he could fix her brakes.
She said the man had her car for a week and when she went to pick it up, the brakes were not fix properly. She paid him some money and agreed to give him the balance when the car was fixed properly.
Knowing the man had a suspended license, she told police she brought him the car to his house to work on it.
She said she had not given him permission to drive her car and had no idea why he would run from police other than because of a suspended license.
She was told to call police if she heard from the man.
She told them she felt bad for the man because he is unemployed and has no money. She refused to press charges.
