TAOS, N.M. (AP) — A Tennessee woman whose van was chased and shot at by a New Mexico State Police officer during a chaotic traffic stop may still see charges.
Taos County district attorney Donald Gallegos told KRQE-TV this week that he will present Oriana Farrell’s case before another grand jury sometime this month.
New Mexico Court of Appeals judge proposed last month tossing the criminal case against Oriana Farrell. The Memphis, Tennessee woman is facing charges of fleeing an officer, child abuse and other charges.
Last year, a New Mexico State Police officer shot at Farrell’s van carrying her five children after she twice sped off and was stopped by another officer for speeding outside of Taos. Video of the shooting gained national attention and the officer was later fired.
