Heard some of the details today at work...what a fucked up situation...
Rachel Lee Coleman, 25, of Sioux Falls has been charged with attempted murder in the first degree, aggravated assault on law enforcement, vehicular battery, driving while intoxicated, felony eluding and felony hit and run, Lincoln County and Minnehaha County statesí attorneys announced Thursday.Coleman was shot by law enforcement after a high-speed chase through western Sioux Falls early Wednesday. Law enforcement said Coleman first rammed into trooper Andrew Steenís vehicle, then returned to strike him after he had stepped out onto the pavement. That incident took place in the parking lot of a shopping complex at 57th Street and Western Avenue.
Steen, an eight-year-veteran of the Highway Patrol, underwent successful surgery early this morning to relieve pressure on his brain, said Col. Craig Price, superintendent of the South Dakota Highway Patrol. He remains in critical condition.
Stay strong Trooper Steen!
