Woman Placed in Psychiatric Hold After Causing Chaos on Boston and Revere Roads

A woman has been placed in a psychiatric hold at a hospital after a series of chaotic incidents on roads in Boston and Revere on Monday morning. The woman’s rampage lasted approximately an hour and involved multiple collisions, evading police, and culminated in an attempt to drive into Fenway Park.

The events began on Sunday night when the woman claimed to have scraped a vehicle while backing out of a one-way street. Boston police responded to reports of a drunk driver but did not observe any signs of physical impairment.

The following morning, State Police received a report of a person driving erratically and aggressively in Revere. The woman allegedly honked and yelled at a state trooper before fleeing the scene. Due to heavy traffic, the trooper chose not to pursue her.

Shortly after, State Police responded to a hit and run at the entrance of the Ted Williams Tunnel in East Boston. It was determined that the same woman had evaded the state trooper and had struck two cars before fleeing again.

The situation escalated when the woman drove into the Coast Guard Base in the North End, causing damage. She then proceeded to drive the wrong way on Boylston Street, hitting several vehicles and attempting to go through a red light.

The woman’s reckless journey eventually led her to Fenway Park, where Officer Christopher Holt attempted to stop her. Despite his efforts, she continued driving, hitting cones and entering the park through Gate C. Officer Holt, recognizing the immediate threat to Fenway staff, instructed a forklift operator to block the entrance with the forklift. The woman attempted to flee but was ultimately stopped on the loading dock.

The woman was taken into custody after Officer Holt broke her car window to unlock the passenger side door. She was subsequently transported to a hospital. During the ambulance ride, she made comments about the weather and her desire to see Fenway Park.

Additional victims came forward, including a construction worker who claimed the woman ran over his foot after yelling at him to move out of the way. The victim, wearing steel boots, declined medical care.

The woman is facing numerous charges, including assault with a dangerous weapon, resisting arrest, trespassing, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, and more. Drug use is suspected to have played a role in the incident.

State Police also intend to pursue charges against the woman for evading police. No other individuals, besides the woman, required hospitalization as a result of the morning’s events.
