Campbell Police: Woman flees traffic stop because she felt like it
Campbell Police say a woman they tried to pull over for running a stop sign waived at the officer and sped through another stop sign.
According to police, an officer saw a car speed through the intersection of 12th Street and Robinson Road Tuesday afternoon.
When the officer switched on his lights and siren, police say the woman driving the car waived at the cruiser and accelerated along Murray Avenue with the officer pursuing close behind.
Police say the car drove past another stop sign at Murray and Madison Street before turning onto Monroe Street, where the car finally stopped.
The officer handcuffed the driver, 27-year-old Savannah Pagan of Campbell.
According to the police report, when asked why she didn’t stop, Pagan responded, “Why would I?”
Another officer asked Pagan why she ran from the officer, and she said because she felt like it, say police.
Pagan was cited for speeding and booked into the county jail on charges of failure to comply with police and a stop sign violation.
She’s scheduled to answer the charges in Campbell Municipal Court on Friday.
Court records show that Pagan is also scheduled to go on trial next month in Campbell for allegedly running a stop sign in May.
