ATLANTA — An Atlanta police officer has been relieved of her duties after investigators said she attacked a fellow officer and tried to run them over with her car.
Investigators said an off-duty APD officer was helping with traffic flow at Wells Fargo bank along Camp Creek Parkway when Lt. Sharonne Steed refused to follow the officer’s directions.
“Lt. Steed continued to defy the officer's orders and ultimately bumped her vehicle into him,” Atlanta police said in a news release Tuesday.
Police said the off-duty officer tried get Steed out of the car and she resisted, ultimately biting the officer’s hand.
Investigators said at some point during the incident, Steed identified herself as an Atlanta police officer. The department said several APD supervisors were then dispatched to the bank to investigate.
Following their investigation, officers took out several felony warrants against Steed, charging her with obstruction, aggravated assault and violation of oath by public officer.
Steed has been relieved of her duties until her case can be adjudicated. Police said she turned herself in to he Fulton County Jail on Tuesday.
Steed has worked as a supervisor at the department’s Airport precinct and has been with the department since July 1997.
