CALEDONIA, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont woman accused of shooting her own car with an assault rifle on Interstate 91 has pleaded not guilty to drug and reckless endangerment charges.

Twenty-five-year-old Lena Allen, of Troy, appeared in Caledonia Superior Court Monday. Police say she blasted holes into her 2011 Nissan Infiniti on July 24 in Barnet using an AK-47 assault rifle. They also say she had methamphetamine and tried to get a State Trooper to shoot her.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/1M0Pxcw ) Allen was also charged with providing false information after claiming several people were trying to kill her. The judge dismissed that charge after her attorney argued there was no evidence in the affidavit refuting her claim.

Allen faces more than two years in prison if convicted, as well as $3,500 in fines.
