GOP Delegate in Kingman Police Chase Says She Wasn't Running From the Cops, She Was Just Running From the Cops

Sharon Holmes has probably never run from the cops in her life, including the time she said she ran from the cops.
Sharon Holmes -- the state GOP delegate accused of pulling a gun on a repo man before losing a police chase to the Kingman cops last week -- offered the Kingman Daily Miner an extremely poor denial to the accusations.

Holmes, 68, reportedly wrote in an email that she didn't run from Kingman police, but proceeded to explain exactly how she ran from Kingman police.

Holmes apparently took it out on the collections agents for her inability to keep up with the payments on her Jeep, as police say she brought her gun out to confront them.

According to an account from the Kingman Police Department, Holmes "pointed a handgun and threatened the agents."

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

While it was still hooked up to the truck, police say Holmes started up her Jeep 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."

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.

Again, Holmes denies that she was running from the po-lice.

As she explained it to the Miner:

When the police refused to listen to me, I dropped the Jeep into 4WD Low and hit the gas with the power of that Hemi engine, and broke loose from the unmarked tow truck, went around two police cars just arriving on the scene, and took off into the County with them in pursuit.

One more time -- she still denies running from the cops.

She went on to say she was a better pursuit driver than any of the cops, she's suing everyone, and some other gems of crazy you can check out over at the Miner.

But in a parting comment Mohave county does not own the exclusive bad honor of all the white supremacist looney tunes, one has to say Maricopa county has their fair share with JT Ready and his cohorts and buddies playing rambo wanna-be's in the desert, his demise and murderous end did not surprise me, am still suspicious he and his buddies were doing wet work in desert undercover in their camoflauge fatigues, thinking themselves some kind of heros murdering unarmed poverty stricken hapless illegals! The good thing is Jesus will sort them all out in the end, and one can just picture old JT Ready and his pal Russell Pearce shoveling coal for them fires in that lake of fire!

I live in Mohave county, am a democrat, folks who have free time ought to visit the Kingman Miner newspaper webs site, commentary section 90% of the comments are xenophobic, bigoted and full of hatred, this womans story is atypical of the majority registered republican voters in this county, the editor of the Kingman Miner is a birther, Obama hater so this woman merely is a reflection of the community! Anyone remember Timothy McVeigh the infamous Oklahoma City Bomber? He and his pal had a bunker here in Mohave county where they planned and plotted their crime! Many do not realize he had ties to the 9 white supremacists who plotted the failed bombing of a Texas federal court house went to his death refusing to name his comrades in arms! Anyone remember the Aryan Nations/Minute man Bush who with his commander Forde murdered the Hispanic man and his 9 year old daughter and was wounded in a exchange of gunfire with the wounded mother? He fled southern Arizona to Meadview, Mohave county Arizona where he sought aide and comfort, was arrested and now sits on death row! This county is riddled with white supremacist hatred and bigotry to bad more attention is not directed on this county but these folks are dangerous, ticking time bombs!

Who picked her to be a delegate?   Or did she win it in a Cracker Jack box?
