SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

A Spokane County sheriff's spokesman says a woman driver accused of first trying to run down a deputy who stopped her for not wearing a seatbelt, then crashing her car, trying to scale a 6-foot fence and taking a swing at the deputy told the officer she really didn't want to go back to jail.

Deputy Craig Chamberlin said Monday the woman eventually told Spokane Valley sheriff's deputy Clay Hilton that she "got scared" Saturday night because she knew she had a suspended license and methamphetamine in her purse.

Chamberlin says 30-year-old Shanell Haddon was booked into jail for investigation of assault, hit and run, possession of a controlled substance, eluding, driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest.
