Portland PD arrest woman after crash into patrol car


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police in Portland say a 20-year-old woman who sideswiped a marked patrol car Sunday morning and then jumped in the backseat and claimed not to be the driver has been taken into custody.

Police say Gailla Tomie Rdiall was booked into the Multnomah County Jail and faces charges of driving under the influence of intoxicants and reckless driving.

Authorities say a precinct sergeant was driving a marked patrol vehicle westbound on Northeast Sandy Boulevard at about 12:50 a.m. when Rdiall sideswiped the vehicle and continued driving west.

Police say the precinct sergeant watched the female driver stop and then climb into the backseat. Police say Rdiall then claimed the male passenger was driving.

Police say no one was injured in the crash.

Rdiall was released on her own recognizance.
