A Columbus woman facing charges in connection hitting a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy with a stolen in February is pleading guilty.
Brooklynn Frazier, 24, originally pleaded not guilty to charges connected to the incident. On Thursday, Frazier changed her plea and pleaded guilty to one count of felonious assault on a police officer, according to court records.
As a result of her change of plea, one count of felonious assault and failure to comply were dismissed, according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.
Frazier is scheduled to be sentenced May 26, but the prosecutor’s office said there is an agreed sentence of 10 years in prison.
On February 22, Frazier hit Deputy Michael Profitt, 25, with a car while trying to drive away from a traffic stop.
Proffitt and another deputy were trying to stop the car in Harrison Twp. after being alerted that it was stolen out of Columbus. The deputies attempted to make a traffic stop on the car near Stop 8 Road and N. Dixie Drive.
News Center 7 previously reported that the female driver, later identified as Frazier, put her car in reverse and quickly accelerated forward, hitting Profitt head-on. The impact was so hard that Profitt’s radio was “embedded” in the suspect’s windshield.
The deputy was thrown onto the Frazier’s car and then fired two shots at the her, striking her twice in the right arm. She then drove off and led officers on a chase on Webster Street and onto Wagner Ford Road before getting on northbound I-75. The pursuit continued until the car came to a stop near the 66 mile marker, just inside Miami County.
Frazier was arrested and taken to Kettering Health Dayton to be treated for her non-life threatening injuries.
