NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A woman was arrested for allegedly nearly running down a cop in an attempt to avoid arrest.

According to a Davidson County affidavit, a group of people were selling drugs in the parking lot of the Harris Teeter along 21st Avenue when a passerby called officers to check it out.

When police got there, they said one suspect, 32-year-old Stephanie Mairson, put her car in reverse and almost hit an officer.

She then allegedly sped off in the parking lot, narrowly missing other cars around her.

Mairson was arrested and charged with evading arrest. Her bond was set at $30,000.

Eight others were also arrested.
