BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

A woman is facing charges after an argument led to a police chase, aggravated assault and a collision with a patrol vehicle.

According to Bainbridge Public Safety, warrants for Jory Jelisa Ware, 27, have been issued for two counts of felony aggravated assault and one count of reckless driving.

BPS posted on its Facebook page that an officer tried to stop Ware when he noticed she was driving recklessly in the 1000 block of Troupe Street around 3 a.m. on Wednesday.

The officer said he saw Ware drive into the grass, make circles and drive back onto the roadway repeatedly. 

BPS said several people were seen running from the area to avoid being hit.

When the officer tried to block Ware, she put the car in reverse, hit the patrol vehicle and then drove at an 'unsafe speed' through the property. According to BPS, several people dodge the car while yelling for Ware to stop.

Two more BPS officers arrived to help, both got out of their patrol cars to try and stop Ware, but she drove towards one of them, almost striking him.

BPS said Ware then sped off, hit a fire hydrant and a tree and then almost hit a man standing nearby. The man jumped out of the way, got into a vehicle and began to drive off when Ware tried to follow him and turned onto Broughton Street. 

According to BPS, Ware continued driving at a fast speed through the Broughton and Sims streets intersection without stopping at a stop sign and then lost control of her vehicle.

Ware struck a power pole, causing it to split.

Officers secured Ware's safety and although it appeared she avoided severe injuries, she was taken by EMS to Memorial Hospital because of the severity of the accident.

Georgia State Patrol arrived and took over the scene.

When officers went to the hospital to speak with Ware, she told them that she and her sister had gotten into a fight with another woman that involved pepper spray at Sims Street Apartments. 

Ware then told BPS she got into her vehicle and began aggressively chasing the woman in an attempt to run her over.
