Georgetown Police say a woman crashed into a police cruiser when officers tried to arrest her for making meth in her car early Thursday.

Police say they were checking up on a suspicious vehicle parked at the apartment building at the corner of College and Maddox Streets.

They found 32-year-old Amy Whisman inside the car, and they say she was cooking meth.

"She actually had a mobile meth lab in the vehicle," says Lt. Robert Swanigan of Georgetown Police. "She was manufacturing methamphetamine."

"With a newborn it's not something I want around. I don't want drugs around my daughter," says Angela Bennett, who lives in the apartment building.

Police say Whisman tried to drive off, and almost hit the officers there.

"The officers had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit," Swanigan says.

Police say Whisman did hit a police cruiser.

Officers broke her car window and deployed a taser to get Whisman out of the car.

Police say she also had marijuana and other drugs in the car, and when questioned, even gave officers a fake name.

Whisman is now facing a total of 13 charges, including manufacturing meth, possession of a controlled substance, and wanton endangerment.
