An officer from Millsboro Police Department and responding troopers located the driver of the fleeing vehicle down the road from the original collision scene.

The driver, later identified as Wanda Rodriguez Gonzalez, exhibited signs of impairment and was detained in the rear of the patrol vehicle. While the troopers were conducting the investigation, Rodriguez Gonzalez began striking the windows in the rear of the patrol vehicle. As troopers were handcuffing Rodriguez Gonzalez, she resisted and bit a trooper’s arm.

An ambulance responded to Troop 4 to treat her injuries. During that time, Rodriguez Gonzalez spit on an EMT and bit a second trooper.
