STATHAM, Ga. – A woman accused of running over and dragging a Statham police officer by her car on a Barrow County street has been arrested.
Authorities announced the arrest of Jessica Fox, 28, Tuesday morning. She had been on the run for several days, according to police.
Dash cam video, obtained exclusively by FOX 5 News on Monday, shows Statham Police Officer Marc Lofton trying to make a stop on Dooley Town Road Saturday afternoon. Lofton said he clocked the car at nearly 15 miles an hour over the posted speed limit.
What took you so long to stop? You kept going and going and going,” Officer Lofton said in the video to the driver.
After the initial stop, Lofton said he recognized Fox, who was wanted for probation violation and outstanding warrants for drug offenses.
“I asked her to get out of the car because she was making me super nervous reaching all over the vehicle. I had her go to the rear of vehicle, asked her what her name was, and she gave me a false name,” Officer Lofton told FOX 5’s Marissa Mitchell after he left the hospital Monday afternoon.
The name heard on the dash cam video was Jessica LaBlanc. Moments later, Lofton said he tried to place Fox under arrest.
