Mineola, NY - October 24, 2017 - The Second Precinct reports the arrest of a woman for DWI at 11:45pm on Monday, October 23, 2017 in Hicksville.
According to Police, defendant Caroline H. Iberger, 32, of Port Jefferson Station was observed by police erratically operating a white colored 2017 Range Rover westbound on Old Country Road. The defendant refused lawful orders to stop her vehicle; drove onto Plainview Road where she encountered two marked police vehicles blocking the roadway so she finally pulled over.
When Officers began to approach her on foot, the defendant accelerated her vehicle toward the Officers causing them to jump out of the way for their own safety. The defendant continued to drive through the area eventually parking the vehicle on a private driveway on Elm Street.
An Officer parked his marked police vehicle on the street in front of the driveway and approached the defendant, at that time; the defendant put her vehicle in reverse, and accelerated out of the driveway in further attempt to elude the police and did strike the marked police car. Officers then placed the defendant into custody without incident.
The defendant was transported to a local area hospital for evaluation.
Defendant Caroline H. Iberger is charged with DWI, Criminal Mischief, two counts of Reckless Endangerment, Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle, and numerous Vehicle and Traffic Law violations. She will be arraigned as soon as medically practical.
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
