At that point, backup arrived as the initial officer bashed out the minivan’s front passenger window with his nightstick and another officer shot at the vehicle as it drove off.

The mother and teenage son were arrested at a hotel after a brief chase. She has since been released and faces charges of child abuse, fleeing and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia for a pair of marijuana pipes found in the van.

It’s unclear whether the 14-year-old is in custody. He faces charges of battery of an officer. His name has not been released.

Farrell’s attorney Alan Maestas did not immediately return a phone call to The Associated Press.

New Mexico authorities say the involved officers are under investigation. The officers have not been identified.

On the video the initial officer could be heard telling Farrell she had been driving 71 mph in a 55 mph zone.
