BOULDER, Colo. - After driving on a sidewalk, lawn and highway with two flat tires, a CU student has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, vehicular eluding and other traffic violations, according to the University of Colorado Police Department.
Campus officers said they first spotted Jennifer Nicole Greer, 22, at 1:04 a.m. on Monday, driving on a sidewalk with two flat tires near the Earth Sciences building.
The first officer tried to wave down the driver, but Greer kept going, police said.
Officials said it had been snowing at the time and tire tracks indicated the vehicle had been driven on the lawn area near the Math Building and knocked down a traffic sign. Another motorist told the UCPD officer that the suspect’s vehicle had struck the median at Arapahoe Avenue and Folsom Street, causing the two flat tires.
A second UCPD officer said he spotted Greer's Subaru at 28th Street and Colorado Avenue and activated his patrol car’s emergency lights and siren.
However, the officer said Greer refused to stop and sped up to 60 mph as she drove onto eastbound U.S. 36.
Because of the poor weather conditions, the officer said he turned off his lights and sirens and started to slow down.
As he was doing this, the officer said he saw the Subaru lose a wheel, hit the median and stop near the Table Mesa Drive exit.
The officers said they arrested Greer at gunpoint and took her to jail.
Officers said Greer refused a blood draw and that she has been charged twice before with alcohol-related driving offenses.
