Woman with 25 license suspensions accused of gunning car at officer


Woman accused of gunning car at officer

A 37-year-old woman whose driver's license has been suspended 25 times led Dade City police on a chase Feb. 21 and nearly ran one officer over, police said Tuesday. Jennifer Lynn Miller was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and, once again, driving with a suspended license. Police encountered Miller as they investigated possible narcotics use at an abandoned house on Howard Avenue that burned down two years ago. As they questioned Miller, she suddenly accelerated toward an officer who had to jump out of the way of the red, 1995 Chevrolet SUV, police said. A witness later connected Miller to the incident. Miller posted $20,000 bail and was released from the county jail.
