Woman shot after hitting Montgomery County deputy with car sentenced

A 24-year-old Columbus woman will spend the next decade in prison after she struck a Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputy with a stolen car in February while trying to flee a traffic stop.

Brooklynn Frazier was sentenced Thursday in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court to 10 years in prison after she pleaded guilty May 12 to felonious assault. A second felonious assault charge and a charge of failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer were dismissed as part of her plea, court records show.

Deputies were called around 8 p.m. Feb. 22 to North Dixie Drive and Stop 8 Road in Harrison Twp. on a report of a stolen vehicle. Deputy Michael Profitt initiated a traffic stop after he spotted the car. He got out of his cruiser and walked toward it when Frazier put the car in reverse and struck him before speeding off, Sheriff Rob Streck said previously.

Profitt, 25, had multiple lacerations, abrasions and road rash, the sheriff said.. The deputy shot Frazier twice in the arm before she drove away.

Dayton, Vandalia, Butler Twp. and MetroParks police responded to assist the sheriff’s office. Officers chased the car to Interstate 75 north until it stopped just south of Tipp City in Miami County.

The pursuit lasted eight minutes and speeds reached 100 mph at times, Streck said.
