The man suspected of running over a Wichita police officer during a pursuit is now charged with aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer.
A 39-year-old Wichita woman was arrested after police say she chased three people with large fireworks in her hand.
Wichita Police Sgt. John Hoofer tells KSN-TV the fireworks were lit and she sprayed the three victims with sparks Friday night.
Hoofer says the woman knew the group of people and was intentionally trying to burn them.
The woman was booked into jail, and authorities say they’re unsure whether alcohol was a factor in the incident.
