June 25--PANAMA CITY BEACH -- An Alabama woman was arrested Thursday after she allegedly struck a Panama City Beach police officer with her car and then rammed an unoccupied marked police cruiser multiple times, according to a news release.
Elizabeth Goff, 44, is charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, leaving the scene of a crash with property damage, fleeing and eluding police and criminal mischief, police reported.
The incident began at about 9 p.m. Thursday night when beach police were called to a reckless driver in a black 4-door Nissan car in the area of Majestic Condos. Officers pursued the Nissan into the parking garage of the Shores of Panama, PCBPD wrote.
While in the parking garage Goff struck an officer, rammed the police car and got away, officers wrote in a news release.
A short time later a Bay County Sheriff's deputy located the Nissan near Joan Avenue attempted to stop the vehicle but Goff fled again. Then a different deputy pulled in behind the Nissan at Ripley's Believe it or Not and Goff again rammed the marked patrol car in an attempt to flee.
She failed and was arrested.
