Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd had this to say about the incident:
“The suspect has a criminal history of fraud and violence, and that’s exactly what was involved here today. Fraudulent activity is how this began, and she elevated it to violence by trying to kill two deputies with her car. Fortunately, she was quickly apprehended, and even more fortunate is that neither one of the deputies were seriously hurt.”
Holder was transported to the Polk County Jail where she is being held without bond and charged with two counts of aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer, armed burglary, and resisting arrest with violence. Charges for fraud are on the way also.
Sheriff Judd said Holder already had a criminal history in Polk County which included battery on a law enforcement officer and battery on an officer/firefighter.
