Two people arrested after brief chase and fight with Amarillo police


Late Thursday night, Amarillo police officers were flagged down in reference to auto burglary suspects in a Dodge minivan at the Cefco at I-40 & Bell St.

When officers attempted to detain the suspects, the driver, 29 year old Jessi Morris of Amarillo rammed her vehicle into a bystander’s vehicle and then rammed her vehicle head-on into one of the officer’s patrol vehicles.

The vehicle then drove back toward the highway to escape before another citizen pinned his vehicle against hers preventing the escape.

Morris fled on foot but was caught and still fought arresting officers. Morris was accompanied by 23 year old Nathan Ramirez of Amarillo and a 15 year old juvenile male.

One officer sustained minor injuries. Morris sustained minor injuries as well.

Morris was booked into the Potter County Detention Center for aggravated assault on a public servant and numerous other charges. Ramirez was also booked into the Potter County Detention Center.
