Reed indicted for attempted murder

A Stuart woman was indicted by a grand jury Sept. 6 on a charge of attempted capital murder of a law enforcement officer.
According to documents in the office of Clerk of Court Susan Gasperini, Michelle Spencer Reed (aka Michelle Lynn Spencer) was indicted on charges of escape from custody of a police officer by force or violence and attempted capital murder of the officer, Deputy Dustin Foley, on May 21, 2016.
According to information released by Patrick Sheriff Dan Smith following the incidents, the Patrick County Sheriff’s Office was requested by Henry County officials to located two wanted suspects on Foley Ridge Road in the Pole Bridge area of the county.
Foley responded to that situation at that location and found the two suspects, who were identified as a married couple, Michelle Spencer Reed and Joshua Coy Reed, both of Stuart, Smith said.
Foley arrested and secured Joshua Reed and then attempted to arrest Michelle Reed, who was sitting in a full-sized pickup truck, the sheriff said.
Foley told Michelle Reed that she was under arrest, but she refused to unlock the doors to the vehicle and comply with the deputy’s commands, Smith said.
After negotiations with Reed failed, Foley broke the passenger window out of the truck and attempted to place Reed into custody.
Reed physically resisted, cranked the vehicle and attempted to run over Foley, Smith said.
Foley was able to jump out of the way of the truck without injury. He ran to his patrol car and started pursuing Reed.
During the pursuit, Reed allegedly drove head-on at Foley’s patrol car, attempting to hit it, Smith said.
Foley was able to maneuver his vehicle to the right, barely missing a head-on collision, the sheriff said.
Foley pursued Reed for about half a mile, at which time Reed crashed and was taken into custody.
Approximately 80 indictments, including the two against Reed, were returned as true bills by the jury on Sept. 6, the first day of the September term of Patrick County Circuit Court.
An indictment is not an indication of guilt or innocence, but is a grand jury’s determination that sufficient evidence exists to warrant a trial.
