WEYMOUTH, Mass. -- A Weymouth woman is facing an attempted murder charge after she allegedly struck a police officer with her car.

Police say Anna Gitlin was driving on Route 18 in Weymouth this morning when she ignored the orders of an officer who was directing traffic around an accident scene.

Police say the officer, Steven Shanlo, was hit by Gitlin's car. He was taken to South Shore Hospital where he was treated for bumps and bruises and later released.

Gitlin faces arraignment today on charges that include assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, failure to obey the directions of a police officer and disorderly conduct. (AP)

Well, I heard that it happened AFTER she had an altercation with the PO outside her vehicle. She stopped, got out, and yelled at him to let her through so she got get onto 128. He refused. She got back in the car and tried to drive through the scene. That's when the PO stood in front of the vehicle and motioned her to stop. She apparently lurched forward to scare him, then stopped and waited a few seconds before hitting the gas and driving about 40 feet with the PO on her hood.
Thankfully, he walked out of the hospital.
I can't imagine how the charges (most of them at least) won't stick, but you never know with our courts. :roll:
