In the final stages of both of my wife’s pregnancies, I was very careful and polite. You do not mess with a woman about to give birth. A Policeman down in St. Thomas learned the lesson, and the court’s did not prosecute. I do not know if this attributed to wisdom or fear?
The woman allegedly aimed her car at a uniformed officer on a police motorcycle Wednesday morning and tried to run him off busy Main Street in downtown Charlotte Amalie, Police Chief Novelle Francis said.
The officer evaded the car without injury and stopped the woman, who is in her mid-30s, police said.
It was not clear why she tried to run the officer over, telling police she thought the officer was “a friend,” Francis said.
Police plan to charge the woman with attempted vehicular assault, but declined to arrest her right away because she was expecting to give birth so soon.
“She’s probably giving birth right now,” Francis said Thursday morning. “She was very pregnant.”
Charlotte Amalie is the capital of the U.S. Caribbean territory of 110,000.
