Twenty-three-year-old Milwaukee resident Kevina Freeman was charged with two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, two counts of use of a dangerous weapon, and three counts of vehicle operator flee/elude traffic officer resulting in bodily harm.
According to the criminal complaint, Freeman’s car was stopped after police deputies clocked her traveling at 71 mph in a 55 mph zone. As the deputy approached Freeman’s vehicle, he “opened the driver’s side door, and the driver immediately put the vehicle into reverse and accelerated at a high rate of speed – striking the front of a squad [car] which still had its emergency lights activated, causing damage.” The deputy who approached Freeman’s car, along with his deputy companion, were both thrown to the ground as a result of the vehicle’s sudden reverse and acceleration. Freeman’s mother, who was sitting in the passenger side of the vehicle, was thrown into the wall of the median.
