SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Police in a standoff with a woman for nearly an hour before they say she tried to run over officers.

It started with someone reporting a woman parked at a gas station and blaring music on Balboa Avenue in Clairemont.

When officers arrived they asked her to turn down the music but she refused and at one point held up a piece of paper to her window that said no.

After about 45 minutes, officers placed spike strips under her tires. That's when police say she tried to ram her way out, striking several police cars and running over the spike strips.

She lost control, drove across lanes and jumped the median and spun out on Mt. Alifan Drive.

Officers surrounded her car, smashed out the side window and dragged her out. During the scuffle to take her into custody, at least one officer suffered some minor cuts and bruises.

Police say the woman will likely face assault with a deadly weapon charges.
