LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a woman who tried to flee the scene of an accident -- and they say she had a warning for any witnesses who might testify against her.
According to an arrest report, 25-year-old Christina Compton was driving on Russett Blvd., just west of the intersection of Shepherdsville Road and Rangeland Road, on Friday, when she crashed into a building at that location.
But police say she didn't stop. Instead, she proceeded to crash into a car that was parked on Russett Blvd.
Officers say both the vehicle and the building suffered extensive damage.
But police say she didn't stop then either, choosing to continue driving to a location on Runic Way.
Police eventually caught up with her and took her into custody. She did not go quietly, according to an arrest report. Police say she was "verbally abusive" when she was placed into the police car, threatening to kill the officer and his family. She also allegedly kicked the windows of the police car.
Later, at the hospital, police say Compton failed to provide any proof of insurance, and allegedly told police that any potential witnesses would not be able to testify against her, because her "people" would "take care of that."
Compton was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, criminal mischief, terroristic threatening, failure to maintain insurance and intimidating a witness.
