Three people are in custody after causing mayhem in a stolen vehicle Monday morning.
Winnipeg police said officers spotted the stolen car around 4:15 a.m. near Lombard Avenue and Rorie Street, but when they tried to stop it, the driver reversed, smashing into the police cruiser.
The driver then sped toward officers, narrowly missing them, police said.
After crashing into a fence, the three suspects tried to escape on foot, but were arrested. One suspect needed to be tased by police before being taken into custody.
Police found meth and a zip gun inside the vehicle, as well as stolen goods from an East St. Paul break-in.
Danielle Marlene Sanderson, 26, faces 19 charges, including assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, use of a stolen credit, meth possession, and various firearms-related offences.

Brenton Sean Paul Harper, 25, faces charges for firearms offences, credit card offences, breaking and entering, and more.
