Mobile police say a pregnant woman assaulted an ambulance driver Saturday and escaped after she was told she would eventually be taken to jail.
Shalatheia Conner, 38, faces charges of second degree assault, first degree criminal trespassing and third degree escape.
The series of events began at around 7:15 a.m. Saturday when police began a traffic stop on Interstate 65 North on a vehicle going below the speed limit.
Conner, the driver, told police she had abdominal pain due to pregnancy. After an ambulance arrived, she was told that after she was evaluated at the hospital, she would be taken to jail on felony warrants. Conner has an outstanding third degree property theft charge and failure to appear, according to court records.
On the way to the hospital, police said, Conner began kicking the rear door of the ambulance and striking its equipment. The driver stopped and attempted to calm her down. Conner, according to police, then assaulted the driver and escaped. She was later found in the area, hiding inside a shed behind a Union Avenue residence.
