Alabama woman charged after trying to run over deputy


WETUMPKA, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama woman accused of trying to run a deputy over has been identified and charged with attempted murder.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports 37-year-old Jacquetta Clarice Brown was also charged with theft of property Tuesday.

Sheriff Bill Franklin says Brown called 911 Sunday morning stating her vehicle was stuck off the roadway; when deputies arrived, they found an empty stolen vehicle.

Franklin says a deputy went to check on a vehicle up the road and approached the car twice, before Brown tried to run him over. Franklin says the deputy fired one round into the cab, hitting Brown in the arm.

Franklin says Brown was driving a truck she stole from a nearby resident.

Brown was hospitalized and later taken to jail. It’s unclear whether she has an attorney.
