Police say a domestic incident that resulted in a chase Saturday evening ended with the arrest of a woman for multiple charges related to multiple ramming attempts.
Ranee Aki, 30, was arrested for two counts of third-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief and reckless endangerment, said Lt. Krag Campbell in a news release.
“They don’t know all the details that led up to, but it sounds like a domestic relationship issue. A variety of things that could have happened,” Campbell said in an interview.
Car chases between people are hardly common around here, Campbell said. Aki was driving a Nissan Altima, and the other vehicle, a Nissan Frontier driven by a 30-year-old man, also had a 19-year-old female passenger, according to police.
According to the release, the driver of the Frontier and Aki were involved in a domestic relationship.
Witnesses told police the chase began on Mall Road, before going to Egan Drive, Riverside Drive, finally terminating on Haloff Way after multiple collisions between the vehicles rendered the Frontier disabled. The chase last about five minutes or so, Campbell said, with JPD getting the first calls at 8:49 p.m.
“It can be very dangerous,” Campbell said. “Thankfully, no one else got hurt.”
The chase drew to an end when a witness to events became concerned that the Altima, driven by Aki, according to police, was going to ram the Frontier, and ordered her to stop with a handgun, according to the news release. JPD arrived soon after, temporarily detaining all involved for interviews.
No injuries were reported, though both vehicles sustained major damage during the chase, according to police. Aki was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center and held without bail and all other parties were released at the scene, according to the release.
