Shortly after 8:00 AM today, deputies were dispatched 117 Miller Rd in reference to a family dispute.
The husband complained that his wife, Pamela Montgomery, had been upstairs “burning” his clothes. She fled the scene prior to the arrival of the deputies. Deputies were unable to locate and interview her at the time.
Later today, at approximately 9:40 AM, deputies were again dispatched to the same residence. Deputies were told that Montgomery had returned to the address in her vehicle, a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer, and was sitting in the driveway. A deputy approached Montgomery while in her vehicle and directed her to exit. Instead, she put the vehicle in gear and backed out of the driveway. In doing so, Montgomery’s vehicle struck and damaged a sheriff’s patrol car.
Montgomery fled from deputies who were trying to stop her. She left the area east on Hogue Rd toward Boehne Camp Rd. She then turned south on Boehne Camp Rd and continued to Pearl Dr where she turned east and cut through several parking lots in the area.
Evansville police officers assisting sheriff’s deputies with the pursuit followed Montgomery into the parking lot of Walmart at 335 S Red Bank Rd. Montgomery continued east in the parking lot, past the main entrance of Walmart, before striking a Evansville Police car and finally coming to a stop. Once stopped, Montgomery still refused to exit her vehicle.
The driver side window of her vehicle was then broken out so she could be taken into custody.
