AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Police video of a confrontation between an officer and a woman in suburban Detroit shows her backing up her car at high speed and slamming him into his patrol car.

Auburn Hills police on Thursday released the dash cam video showing the Oct. 23 incident when Officer Martin Mikolajczak tried to arrest Breianna Smart of Pontiac for driving on a suspended license.

The two struggle then Smart jumps into her car and fires it in reverse, her open door striking Mikolajczak and slamming him into his car. She then drives away.

Mikolajczak was hurt but has returned to work.

Smart’s charges include fleeing and eluding police and assaulting, resisting or obstructing an officer causing injury. Authorities say she’s jailed and has no attorney.

Smart is due back in court Monday.
