Nicole Evans of Cobb County, Ga., (pictured) was cuffed on Tuesday after a highway police chase. She is accused of a bizarre crime: attempting to carjack a cab, then stealing a man’s pickup truck with her two young children in tow, reports My Fox Atlanta.
According to police, the 27-year-old mom first reportedly tried to steal a parked taxi from a transit station. Cab driver Danny Kim told police investigators that Evans and her children entered his cab in a routine manner. But he says when he was placing the children’s stroller into his trunk, she jumped into the driver’s seat and attempted to drive off.
“She was like, ‘I got to go, I got to go. Let me go, let me go,’” Kim said. “I put my hand right there, I tried to get the keys.”
Kim said that Evans put up quite a struggle when he tried to take his car keys away from her. The cabbie said another fellow taxi driver witnessed the incident between him and Evans and jumped in to help him wrestle the keys out of her hands.
“My friend was blocking the door,” Kim said. “She jumped through the window and then took off.”
Kim also alleges that Evans seemingly had no regard for the safety of her two young toddlers, whom he says she was dragging around like luggage.
After the Kim incident, Evans reportedly then went across the street to a Chevron gas station where she spotted a pickup sans its owner. She allegedly started pulling out of the station with the vehicle, but the owner came running out and jumped on the truck’s hood. The unidentified man tried holding onto the truck as Evans pulled out of the station for about 2,000 feet but fell off. The vehicle’s owner was treated for minor injuries.
The cops were able to use GPS to locate the stolen truck, which was discovered on an interstate in nearby Carroll County. When officers reportedly spotted Evans and the stolen vehicle, they quickly gave chase. Evans wound up slamming into a police cruiser. No one was injured.
Police officers arrested Evans and booked her on over 20 charges, including theft, reckless conduct, aggravated assault, cruelty to children, fleeing a police officer, speeding and reckless driving. The suspect’s two children were turned over to their father who lives in Roswell.
2. HAPPY CHILDREN=QUALITY PARENTING. We don't always see eye to eye on everything and that's normal. We're human beings. But we come together and do it right for what's important, the kids. We are not enemies, we are parents. And we are parents 1st. S/O to @monyettashaw for making Mason's bday memorable. S/O to @itscrystalsmith at home taking care of our other lil' Prince. ❤️❤️❤️ THIS IS WHAT CO-PARENTING LOOKS LIKE. #Blessed #Happy #AboveTheDrama #BiggerThanUs
