Woman Pays The Price For Driving To A Public Place While Cop Was Attempting To Pull Her Over

Nurse DelRea Good said she did not immediately stop when she saw flashing lights behind her because she was a woman traveling alone at 11:21 p.m. on a dark county road. She was worried about her safety if she stopped right there.

Good said she slowed down, put on her emergency flashers, and then waved out the window to acknowledge the police car. She went on down the road less than a mile where she stopped in the lighted store parking lot.

Because she didn’t stop, she was handcuffed and taken to jail by Porter County Sheriff's Department Patrolman William Marshall. Shockingly, she was arrested on a felony charge of resisting arrest.

"I felt I didn't do anything wrong," Good noted in an interview with the media. "I got to a safe place and I told him that."

Porter County Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Larry LaFlower commented that "The sheriff's office supports our officer's decision in this matter.”

He pointed to a state law requiring motorists to yield to emergency vehicles and said the officer was driving a fully marked squad car and used the lights and siren.

The incident report noted a March 20 traffic stop just north of County Road 700 North on northbound County Road 500 West (Airport Road) with radar indicating a car traveling 54 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Marshall admitted Good waved out her car window and put on her flashers and pulled over less than a mile later in the Kohl’s parking lot.

Good claims she did not resist the arrest or say anything else, and alleges the officer bruised her arm taking her to the police car, and continued to bully her at the jail by falsely charging that the Advil and other medications she had in her car were controlled substances.
