LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - A woman accused of trying to crash her minivan into a Boulder County sheriff’s deputy’s vehicle has pleaded guilty to vehicular assault.

The Longmont Times-Call reports (http://goo.gl/o8Uu3z ) 28-year-old Jessica Hargest entered her plea Friday, and prosecutors agreed to drop charges of attempted murder and no proof of insurance, as well as a violent crime sentencing enhancement.

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office arrested Hargest in March, saying she tried to crash into the deputy as he drove his marked patrol car on U.S. 36 north of Boulder. Investigators say she told the deputy she was trying to kill him, but her attorney has said she was simply confused.

Hargest’s sentence includes a mental health evaluation and community service. Her attorney declined to comment after Friday’s hearing.
