VIDEO: Woman injures cops fleeing traffic stop

MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee woman has been formally charged over an incident earlier this month in which she rammed into a squad car during a traffic stop , injuring three.

23-year-old Kevina Freeman faces five felony charges, including two counts of first degree recklessly endangering safety with use of a dangerous weapon, two counts of fleeing a traffic officer resulting in bodily harm, and one count of fleeing a traffic officer causing damage to property.

According to the criminal complaint, Freeman had been pulled over for speeding when two responding deputies noticed she was driving without a license or valid insurance. When they called for a tow, the driver began to stall and told deputies "I'm never going to get my car back."

Several minutes after deputies told Freeman to gather her personal belongings, they again went to check on her. That's when the criminal complaint says she threw her car in reverse, ramming into the squad car behind her. Both deputies, as well as Freeman's mother, were injured.

If convicted of all counts, Freeman faces a maximum of 52 years in prison.
