Reno officer hurt, woman arrested in high-speed chase
RENO, Nev. (AP) — A 21-year-old woman is accused of backing into a Reno police officer and trying to hit two police cruisers and a motorcycle cop during a high-speed chase that ended in her arrest on multiple charges.
Police say Lanayah Happy fled when an officer heard a disturbance at a south Reno apartment complex coming from a car with the wrong license plates at 2 p.m. Monday.
The first officer who tried to apprehend her suffered minor injuries to his leg when she backed into him. She also crashed into an SUV. She was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries and booked on suspicion of battery and assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, obstructing and resisting arrest and suspicion of DUI.
It’s not clear if she has a lawyer. Her initial court appearance is pending.
