Bevy of Charges Await Driver Shot By Police Officer

Posted By on Wed, Apr 14, 2010 at 11:45 AM

The female driver witnesses watched crash into at least five cars in SOMA before being shot by a police officer who claims she was attempting to run him over is recovering from her wounds in General Hospital. 

But the driver's speedy recovery comes with an unpleasant caveat. "When she's medically cleared, she will be booked for some charges," affirms police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.

The police didn't have a list of charges at the ready -- but when you

smash up a line of cars and then allegedly try to take out a police

officer with your car, it's not a trifling matter.

The driver's identity will be released by the police when she is booked -- and Esparza has no estimation of when that day will come. Also uncertain is the driver's sobriety at the time of the Monday incident.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
