Ky. Woman Faces Charges After Police Pursuit Through Dorchester Co.

Posted:

EASTON, Md.- A Kentucky woman faces multiple charges, after a police pursuit through Dorchester County beginning at 12:19 p.m. Tuesday.

According to Maryland State Police, a trooper attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a suicidal subject called in by Anne Arundel County Police at eastbound Route 50 and mile-marker 86. Police said they were alerted the woman, described as a white female driving a green 1996 GMC pick-up, wanted police to kill her.

During the attempt at a traffic stop, police said rather than pulling over, the woman, identified as Bhre Meece, 40, of Kentucky, sped up to approximately 80 mph. Subsequently, Dorchester County Deputies joined in the pursuit. Police said Meece attempted to ram one of the deputies, who was driving beside her in the slow lane.  According to police, the deputy swerved to avoid contact and spun out in the roadway. No damage or injuries were caused.

Police said stop sticks were deployed, although Meece swerved, avoiding the sticks, and then attempted to ram another deputy but was unsuccessful. According to police, Meece subsequently sped up to 100 mph, before crashing into the concrete barrier on the Vienna Bridge. Police believe Meece intentionally ran into the barrier.

Upon making contact with Meece, a trooper on scene said he detected an odor of alcohol coming from Meece's breath, and observed several open containers of alcohol in the vehicle.

Meece was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical center in Salisbury for any possible injuries. She will be charged with DUI, several traffic charges, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
