Driver tried to run deputy, others off the road, St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office says

ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. - A driver intentionally tried to run a deputy and other motorists off the road Sunday, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.

Ebony Tommie  was southbound on 25th Street near Orange Avenue around 11:30 a.m. when she targeted a deputy, the sheriff's office said.

She then tried to run several other vehicles off the road as other deputies tried to stop her, the sheriff's office said 

She eventually crashed into a car and then a tree on Okeechobee Road near the Orange Blossom Business Center.

Deputies said family members later told them that Tommie had talked in the past about harming herself and made a claim that she had a bomb at her home.

The bomb squad was sent to her residence but did not find an explosive.

The sheriff's office charged Tommie with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, fleeing and eluding police, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

They booked her into the St. Lucie County Jail where she's being held without bond.

Investigators say if you were a witness or forced off the road by Tommie, please call the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office at 772-462-3297.
