Woman accused of taking PCP, crashing car into police cruiser
An Isabella Street woman has been arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of phencyclidine, commonly known as PCP or angel dust, according to Pennsylvania College of Technology police.
Shaquona M. Short, 37, of 1115 Isabella St., also faces a charge of fleeing police as she allegedly fled from Patrolman Zachary G. Schon in her 1997 Mercury at Park Street and Hagan Way on Sept. 8, court records state.
The pursuit continued across the Maynard Street bridge into South Williamsport and ended near there when Short crashed her car into the side of a state police cruiser, whose driver had joined the chase.
Short was not injured but she was disoriented and unstable on her feet. A blood test revealed she was under the influence of a controlled substance, police said.
Following her recent arraignment before District Judge James Carn, she was released on $15,000 bail.

It was during a strip search, conducted by a female officer at police headquarters, when the controlled substances were discovered, according to an affidavit.
Following her arraignment before District Judge Allen P. Page III, Henry initially was committed to the Lycoming County Prison but has since been released on $10,000 bail.
