The passenger side of the car was distinct with vinyl lettering of “ITSJAMAL__” on the window. After being initially paced at 85 in a 70 mph zone a traffic stop was attempted, however, the driver fled at high rates of speed. MNPD AirOne and a THP helicopter picked up the pursuit, observing the vehicle ‘blacked out’ several times (turned off all lights) in an attempt to avoid being tracked.

31-year-old Dominique Thomas is charged with the aggravated assault of her brother, Marcus Price, after she attacked him with a purse in her left hand and a straight-edge razor in her right hand, as he was on the couch. The victim suffered a severe slice wound directly between his eyes. As he called the police she fled the scene. Police and medics responded, and a felony warrant was issued for her arrest.

Officers took her into custody, and found her with a glass pipe with narcotic residue in her pocket. She remains jailed in lieu of a $45,000 bond, charged with felony aggravated assault, drug paraphernalia, evading arrest, and resisting arrest.
