The criminal bar has been dealing more regularly with the emergence of “synthetic marijuana” across the country, including incredibly potent form of the drug. Hospitalizations are rising and so are crimes referencing the drug. However, this seems a serious no addition to illegal drug markets. Emmerli Wilcoxson is a case in point. The Georgia woman was allegedly high on synthetic marijuana when she took police on an over 130 MPH car chase. That is bad enough but we was driving a stolen police cruiser. And, oh yea, she was driving on a suspended license.
Police say that, while dodging them at high speed, Wilcoxson was screaming at them in the police radio. She eventually plowed into back of a Chevy Cavalier, hit a wall and then hit another vehicle. The driver of the cavalier was seriously injured.
Otherwise detailed accounts of the case fail to mention how Wilcoxson was able to steal the a Cobb County police car.
Wilcoxson has a history with police. In October 2010, Wilcoxson allegedly threatened to kill a North Carolina police officer and was critically injured after being shot in Raleigh.
As you might imagine, the police charged her with everything short of genocide. She currently has 24 charges against her, including aggravated assault, theft by taking, obstruction, fleeing, interference with government property and numerous traffic offenses, including failure to maintain lane, driving within a gore or median, reckless driving and speeding.
