The woman was making noise and knocking on doors in a neighborhood near Intercontinental Airport last night.
A deputy arrived to investigate and when he got out of his car she jumped in and went for a joy ride. She ran over two mail boxes, hit a storage crate, and then crashed the cruiser into a parked truck on Surles near Aldine.
Paramedics and a second deputy then say she assaulted them while they tried to treat her injuries.
She was taken to the hospital and is now facing several charges.
