FARMINGTON -- Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings released dramatic dash-cam video Friday showing a Morgan County Sheriff's deputy shooting a woman following a Nov. 24 vehicle pursuit that ended in South Weber.
The Standard-Examiner filed a public records request for the videos filmed by a South Ogden police vehicle.
Rawlings released the videos with permission from the South Ogden Police Department.
Kristine Nicole Biggs, 41, of Rock Springs, Wyo., was shot in the eye by a Morgan County Sheriff's deputy following a chase that covered 32 miles.
Morgan County deputies initially signaled to Biggs to pull over on Interstate 84 because she had a broken headlight.
Instead of complying, Biggs continued west on I-84, then crossed the median and headed east, entering Morgan, where she turned again and got back on the interstate, according to authorities.
Morgan sheriff's officers called Utah Highway Patrol for help, and troopers put spikes on the highway.
The two right tires and the back left tire on Biggs' pickup truck were flattened, but she continued for another six miles before leaving the interstate at Exit 85.
Officers followed her, and she led them onto Cottonwood Drive.
In one of the videos, a Morgan deputy, with his service revolver raised, watches as Biggs' truck strikes the rear of his patrol vehicle.
"Get out of the car!" the deputy is heard yelling at Biggs.
She then revs the truck's engine, backs up, and appears to be attempting to drive away when the deputy yells again for her to stop.
The video shows the deputy, who is off to the side of Biggs' truck, firing a shot that strikes her.
In a second video, law enforcement officers are shown removing Biggs from the truck and placing her on the ground.
"Find out where she is bleeding from," one officer can be heard saying.
Biggs swears and moans as officers attempt to treat her wound.
"Where's my dog?" she asks at one point.
Rawlings declined to comment on the videos.
"The investigation phase (of the shooting) is over and the screening and vetting stage has begun," he said, regarding whether or not the Morgan sheriff's deputy was legally justified in shooting Biggs.
A countywide team, consisting of officers from several agencies, investigated the shooting and submitted reports and evidence to the Davis County Attorney's Office to review, normal procedure in a police shooting.
The name of the officer who shot Biggs has not been released.
She is being held without bail in the Davis County jail and faces a number of felony and misdemeanor charges. An arraignment hearing is scheduled at 9 a.m. Monday in 2nd District Court.
