6/17/2005Connecticut Woman Starts Car Chase with Booted Car
Waterbury, Connecticut woman faces charges after driving off with a boot attached to her car.
Marisol Navarro, 32, initiated a low-speed police chase in Waterbury, Connecticut on Wednesday after she drove off in her 1988 Mazda Protege minutes after police attached a boot to her left rear wheel in an attempt to immobilize her vehicle. It didn't work.
Police Sgt. Christopher Corbett saw the booted car and immediately gave chase. Navarro ignored the police and drove to the local newspaper office, demanding to speak to a reporter. Police arrested her on charges of larceny in the fifth degree, criminal mischief in the third degree and interfering with an officer. In addition to the original $264 in unpaid parking tickets, they want her to pay $336 for the damage done to the boot. Navarro has now paid her parking tickets and is to appear in court June 27.
