Watertown Police tracked down and arrested a woman wanted for allegedly trying to rundown an officer during an incident on Coolidge Avenue earlier this month.
On Nov. 12, police responded to a disturbance at 131 Coolidge Ave. involving a woman they later identified as 28-year-old Deanna Beaucher of Reading. After the incident, police discovered she had given them a fake name, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.
“An officer on the scene determined her real name and found she had three outstanding warrants,” Lawn said.
The officer went to the the parking garage to see if he could locate Beaucher, and found her in her vehicle
“She drove directly toward the officer, who had to jump out of the way,” Lawn said. “The garage door was not all the way up and she caused some damage.”
Watertown Police got an additional warrant for Beaucher for Assaunt with a dangerous weapon and reckless operation of a motor vehicle. They searched for Beaucher and on Nov. 23 they found her at a hotel in Waltham.
“Officers were able to subdue her and place her under arrest,” Lawn said.
Beacher was arrested on the charges in Watertown, plus two warrants from Lawrence District Court – for malicious destruction of property and larceny over $250 – and one from Cambridge District Court for malicious destruction for property, Lawn said.
