Chicago officer mowed down when naked woman he seemed hesitant to detain steals squad car

A woman wearing little, if any, clothes who allegedly took off in a police car after grappling with a Chicago cop reportedly faces numerous charges, including attempted first-degree murder.

Cops encountered the woman on Monday morning upon being dispatched to a call about a woman “naked, intoxicated, and threatening to hit people in the street,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

According to prosecutors, “After finding [the woman] laying in the street and partially clothed, the officer got out of his marked SUV to check on her and called for an ambulance…[she] later jumped into the officer’s SUV as he tried to stop her, but she gunned the car in reverse, dragging the officer with the car and causing him to hit his head on a parked vehicle,” the news outlet added.

As part of what might seem like a sequence from an implausible, direct-to-streaming action movie rather than real life, the suspect allegedly got into several crashes while behind the wheel of the squad car before she was apprehended shortly thereafter following a brief foot chase.

Much of the chaotic scene was captured on video that can be seen below:

The woman’s lawyer said he had “reason to believe” that his client, a mom and hard-working tax accountant, 34, was a victim of a sexual assault before the incident with the police, and which explained why she was partially garmentless “as well as her erratic behavior.”

The very lucky officer, 47, avoided serious injury other than reportedly requiring six stitches for a gash on his head. He was treated at a local hospital and released the same day.

The suspect, identified by several media outlets as Whitley Temple, received a psychological evaluation at the same hospital that rendered treatment to the officer.

She allegedly “tested positive for benzodiazepine, a type of psychoactive medication, and cannabinoids, which can include marijuana or CBD,” prosecutors claimed.

The police investigation into what was the source of this incident is ongoing. In addition to several additional felony charges such as aggravated battery to a peace officer, resisting or obstructing a peace officer, vehicular hijacking, and possession of a stolen law enforcement vehicle, the suspect was allegedly driving on a suspended license and with no insurance.

Watch a report aired by WGN:

The occurrence in the crime-ridden city presided over by far-left Mayor Lori Lightfoot prompted a lot of reactions of all kinds on social media, including the officer’s apparent reluctance to apprehend the woman.

Here is just a sampling:

All suspects are presumed innocent until or unless they are convicted in a court of law of any alleged crimes.
