Woman Speeds Past Bus Stop, Police use Stun Gun

FORT WAYNE Ind. (WOWO): A stun gun was used to catch a 27-year-old mother who police chased down on foot.

Paris Laramore drove her car toward a group of children earlier this week who were just getting off a school bus. That's when the chase began.

Earlier that day, police were called to Baldwin Creek Apartments when Laramore's 3-year-old daughter was found wondering through the building. The child pointed police to her apartment and once inside, police discovered leftover drug items and declared the unit not suitable for living. An 11-year-old was also in the apartment and told police Laramore had left to go pick up three other siblings at a nearby bus stop.

Shortly after officers went to the bus stop located on Hobson Rd, Laramore came speeding through a parking lot, barely hitting the children.

Police asked Laramore to put her hands behind her back. She ran away and that's when the officers proceeded to chase her and later use the stun gun.

Laramore was arrested and faces misdemeanor charges, including reckless driving and resisting law enforcement. She is currently held on a $2,250 bail.
