Investigator Robert Reece said Elizabeth Ann Swift, 31, and Shenard Mural Johnson, 24, were arrested Jan. 16, after being found in possession of methamphetamine.
Reece said, when the traffic stop was attempted, Swift intentionally rammed the Lexus she was driving into a Jones County patrol car driven by Deputy Thomas Sullivan. He said the deputy sustained minor injuries from the collision.
“After a brief struggle, she was taken into custody,” the investigator said.
Swift was charged with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, aggravated assault on a peace officer, and damage to government property.
Reece said, when Johnson was exiting the vehicle, a gun fell out and another gun was found in his pants. He said the suspect has a previous conviction in Bibb County for aggravated assault after he shot someone.
