BEYOND BERGEN: A combative woman who was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser following a domestic dispute kicked out the partition window, climbed into the front and drove off, police in Camden County said.
Lindenwold police officers responding to the call at 1:10 this morning said 35-year-old Danyl Fontanez told them there no longer was a problem.
When they tried to explain that they are required to check out the call, they said, she became combative — to the point that they had to arrest her.
They’d returned to the home when Fontanez slipped off the cuffs and made her way into the driver’s seat through the foot-square window, Detective Christopher Sherrer said.
Another cruiser chased her for a few minutes before Fontanez pulled over in nearby Cherry Hill, got out and began fighting again.
She was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of a cut on her chin.
The police vehicle wasn’t damaged.
