    A woman was arrested on Wednesday, Feb. 21, on suspicion of fleeing officers in a stolen vehicle and ramming police vehicles during the pursuit, Costa Mesa authorities said.

    Around 12:45 p.m., Costa Mesa police officers were called to assist another agency in pulling over a stolen vehicle, according to a Costa Mesa Police Department statement.

    “The female suspect driver had rammed into law enforcement vehicles when she began to flee from them,” said the statement.

    Information on what city the pursuit started in was not immediately available.

    A Costa Mesa motor sergeant following the stolen vehicle was involved in a separate crash with another vehicle at Harbor Boulevard and Nutmeg Place, next to the Costa Mesa Shopping Square, police said. The officer suffered minor injuries.

    The wanted driver was eventually located in the shopping center. Destiny Sherer, 29, was arrested there.

    Sherer, whose residence was not known, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and driving a stolen vehicle.

    The investigation is ongoing and authorities say the stolen vehicle is suspected in burglaries in a neighboring city.
