PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Pierre woman is facing eight charges after crashing her vehicle into a tree and then attempting to flee.

Pierre Police Capt. Derald Gross tells KCCR-AM that Teri Hairy Bird was driving a 2001 Chevy Tahoe when it hit a tree. Gross says Hairy Bird and two male passengers fled the scene on foot, but she was arrested after a short chase.

Gross says Hairy Bird assaulted a police officer when she was arrested. The charges against Hairy Bird include simple assault against law enforcement and reckless driving.

The two passengers were later found at their homes. One of them, 27-year-old Budd Hansen, of Pierre, was arrested on a bench warrant.

Gross says the vehicle’s damage has been estimated at $15,000.

It’s unclear whether Hairy Bird and Hansen have attorneys.
