Maryland woman allegedly drove on sidewalk while fleeing Potomac Yard shoplifting investigation

A 26-year-old Maryland woman faces serious charges after allegedly fleeing from a police investigation of a shoplifting offense at the Target store in the Potomac Yard shopping center.

“During the course of investigating this incident, one of the suspects resisted arrest and jumped into a vehicle,” police reported in a search warrant affidavit.

Sharifa Shuler was arrested on September 27 in Bowie, Maryland, after allegedly eluding police in a silver BMW on September 18.

“Shuler drove the vehicle into (the investigating officer’s) police cruiser striking the passenger side rear tire,” police said in the warrant.

Shuler allegedly almost struck the officer and a pedestrian in a crosswalk, according to the warrant. Police said that Shuler then allegedly drove on the sidewalk on S. Henry Street.

Several minutes later (police) located the suspect vehicle traveling south along S. Henry Street and observed it traveling on the sidewalk,” police said in the affidavit. “The pursuit was terminated and the vehicle was last seen traveling into Maryland.”

Shuler was booked in the Alexandria Jail on October 21 and released on a $3,000 bond the same day, according to the Alexandria Sheriff’s Office. She was charged with petit larceny (less than $1,000) not from a person, assault on law enforcement, resisting arrest, failure to stop at an accident and reckless driving. She goes to court on December 10.
