Raibeck told Morris numerous times to stop, but Morris proceeds forward, causing Raibeck to jump out of the way of the vehicle.

Morris fled the area towards Fountain Springs on Route 61.

Officer Hand took Morris into custody.

Morris was transported back to the Ashland Police Station where she showed multiple signs of intoxication.  Morris also fought with police and had to be restrained at the police station.
