OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha authorities say no one was injured after an airport police officer fired at a woman who was driving toward the officer in an SUV.

Omaha police spokesman Kevin Wiese says the 40-year-old driver was arrested Thursday after the incident at Eppley Airfield. She faces charges of first-degree felony assault of an officer, willful reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

Police say the woman got into an argument inside the airport before driving through a lowered arm at a payment booth. They say the Airport Authority Officer Michele Brandt and Sgt. Gary Shillito found the SUV in an airport parking lot and approached it. Police say the driver drove at Brandt, who shot at the vehicle.

The driver escaped and was later arrested by Omaha police.
