Grambling PD arrests motorist

A woman was arrested by Grambling Police Monday after a traffic violation led to a brief vehicle chase.

Amber J. Parker, 22, of Memphis, Tenn., was reportedly stopped for speeding in a school zone. A records check revealed Parker’s driver’s license was suspended. Parker reportedly became argumentative and sped away, nearly striking officers. A short pursuit followed in which Parker allegedly committed numerous traffic violations before stopping near the Grambling State baseball field. As she was taken into custody, she would not allow officers to handcuff her and refused to get into a patrol car. Officers had to physically place her inside the vehicle.

Parker was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for three counts of resisting an officer, aggravated flight from an officer, and two counts of aggravated assault. Bail was set at $130,000.
