DUI Traffic Stop Turns Dangerous: Officer Injured in Fleeing Suspect Incident

LAUDERHILL, Fla. – Authorities have released body camera footage depicting an incident that occurred over the weekend during a DUI traffic stop, resulting in an officer being injured.

The footage reveals a Lauderhill police officer being struck by a suspect’s vehicle as the suspect attempted to flee.

The incident took place on Saturday around 8 p.m. on the 5500 block of Northwest 44th Street in Lauderhill.

Subsequently, the police arrested and charged 26-year-old Crystalee Tennant-Parnther with multiple offenses.

The video demonstrates the officer’s attempt to gather information about Tennant-Parnther’s identity before she tried to drive away, ultimately hitting the officer with her open car door.

A short distance away, Tennant-Parnther collided with a tree.

The body camera footage depicts the same officer, whom the suspect had struck, arriving at the scene and assisting in removing Tennant-Parnther from her vehicle by using a knife to cut her out of her seat belt.

On Monday, Tennant-Parnther appeared before a judge, who informed her that she is prohibited from driving under any circumstances.

One of the charges against her includes driving with an expired license that had been expired for more than six months.
