A woman has pleaded no contest to crashing into a police car while being pursued in Tonganoxie, according to the county attorney.

Raydeana Roberts, 31, Topeka, entered the plea Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court. She pleaded no contest to charges of aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer.

The charges stemmed from a July 22, 2017, incident. Roberts was driving in Tonganoxie when she came upon a DUI checkpoint. She evaded the checkpoint and led officers on a chase through the city, according to a news release from County Attorney Todd Thompson.

She reportedly used her vehicle to strike a patrol car that was occupied by former Tonganoxie Police Chief Jeff Brandau and Officer Clarence Marquardt. Brandau was injured in the crash.

Roberts exited her vehicle and tried to flee the scene but was apprehended by officers, according to the release from Thompson.

Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 24.
