Sharon Holmes was picked by the Mohave County Republican Party to head to the state GOP convention last month for a shot at becoming a delegate for the Republican Party National Convention.

She didn't win that spot, nor did she win a car chase with Kingman police Sunday evening.

According to an account from the Kingman Police Department, Holmes, 68, owed someone some money, as collections agents showed up to her place to take back her car.

Holmes apparently didn't want to play by the rules, as she brought out her gun to confront the agents, police say.

According to the cops, Holmes "pointed a handgun and threatened the agents."

By the time officers showed up, Holmes barricaded herself in her car, which was already hooked up to the tow truck.

That would seem like game over for Holmes, but police say she started it up anyway and managed to detach her car from the tow truck after dropping it into four-wheel drive, "narrowly miss[ing] officers who jumped out of the way of being struck by the vehicle," police say.

Cops say Holmes led police on a chase, which lasted about two miles before her car broke down.

According to the cops, Holmes caused "substantial damage" to what used to be her car, as well as the tow truck.

Holmes was booked into the Mohave County Jail, and faces charges of aggravated assault, aggravated assault on police officers, flight from law enforcement, and criminal damage.

She isn't a legislator.

This headline is misleading. It implys that she was a delegate to the national convention. But in actuality, she was just one of over 1000 delegates to the GOP's state convention. In many cases all you needed to do to become a delegate was just show up at the county caucus (or legislative district caucus in Maricopa or Pima counties). Big deal. Hardly newsworthy that she was a delegate to the state convention in that context.

Another deadbeat Republican. She should have called her fellow legislator Carl "Potato Head" Seel for some advice on how to deal with creditors by passing favorable legislation. Bank of America dropped their foreclosure action against deadbeat Carl and instead knocked a big chunk off what he owed.

Another Arizona "illegal" in action.
