Woman Admits to Ramming Other Car in Drive-Thru to Make Them Move
A Lubbock woman was arrested on Tuesday, October 5th after it's said that she was involved in a series of 3 collisions that eventually ended at 50th Street and Quaker Avenue.
When officers arrived at the final crash scene, they found the suspect, Danielle Lashawn Trout, sitting on an EMS gurney. One of the officers said that he heard Trout say she was involved in 2 accidents immediately beforehand.
The officer also said that he heard Trout say that she rammed into a vehicle in front of her at the Church's Chicken drive-thru because they weren't moving. After that, she said that she was running multiple red lights intentionally.
KAMC News reports that at some point Trout hopped off the gurney and demanded that one of the officers give her the keys to her vehicle, and he complied. However, he didn't say that he removed the ignition key. When she got into her car and attempted to leave, officers pulled her out and arrested her. Trout was charged with aggravated assault.
The only injuries reported were from the last accident, where officers observed a man being taken to University Medical Center with an injury to his arm.
As of Thursday, October 7th, Trout remained in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $15,000 bond.
