HARTFORD, MI (WKZO/WHTC) - Formal charges were filed on Monday against a 27-year-old South Haven area woman who allegedly led Hartford Police on a high speed chase that left an officer with minor injuries. It began with a routine stop for improper plates at Center and Shepard in Hartford. Tiffani Oliver reportedly gave them a Missouri Driver’s License that belonged to someone else, and when the officer pointed it out, she tried to flee. The Officer grabbed on and was briefly dragged but let go and managed to give chase in his cruiser.
They say Oliver tried to shake the officers by trying to ram the cruiser. The chase ended when she went into a ditch off Red Arrow near 59-1/2 St. Oliver ran into the woods and had to be tracked down by a K-9. When they found her she allegedly resisted arrest. Oliver was charged with multiple felonies, including fleeing and eluding and resisting, and remains in the Van Buren County Jail on 10 thousand dollars bond pending a December 3 preliminary hearing.
