Arika Felder was having what we can only imagine was a bad day. To quote noted psychologist Butt-Head "She was like angry and stuff".
So angry and stuff that Felder jerked her car across three lanes of northbound traffic on the Garden State Parkway at mile marker 109 Tuesday evening around 6 pm. After effectively shutting down the Parkway, Felder began flashing the other motorists, like ya do. After flashing the public for a while and shutting down a major thoroughfare, police arrived on the scene as they often do. A New Jersey State Trooper approached Felder who ran back to her car with the officer in foot pursuit. The officer tried to stop Felder from driving off but was caught up in the car and dragged for a short distance as Felder took off before crashing her car into a concrete barrier shortly thereafter.
Both the officer and Felder were taken to the hospital with the officer being treated for minor injuries before his release. Felder wasn't injured in the accident but was charged with aggravated assault on a police trooper, eluding and resisting arrest and was sent to a state mental facility for observation.
