i was working a repossession case in va while working the case the lady came out at which time i had identified my self. she jumped into the driver seat and threw the vehicle into reverse and proceed to drive into myself, after she hit me the lady had shifted the car into drive and bumped the curb went around 2 vehicles and back into the parking lot and drove out into the street. at which time my partner called the local pd and informed them what had happened, also we had informed dispatch that we was behind the vehicle which she was driveing thru 3 different jurisdictions. she pulled into a parking lot of a gas station at which time she got out of the vehicle and was talking to my partner who did not have any luck she jumped back into her car while i was attempting to remove her plates hopeing that it would slow her down when she shifted the car into drive and hit me again at which time i drew my weapon and told her not to move until the police get there. when the local pd arrived on the location they told me to re holster my weapon and take the vehicle. my question is does that lady have the right to file charges even through the police did not file any charges. being she hit me with her vehicle.
as it stands the subject filed a brandish a firearm charge which i think she got no right to do so under the situation.
