Bridgeport Woman Sentenced on Assault with a Car Charge


Carla Denver, 23

Back in August, a Bridgeport woman went on what deputies called a wild ride in a high speed pursuit in and out of traffic in Bridgeport and on Highway 395. That woman, 23-year-old Carla Denver, has now entered pleas of assault and evading.

Mono Sheriff’s deputies had earlier reported that Ms. Denver failed to stop and took officers on an hour-long pursuit. At one point, officers said she swerved towards oncoming traffic and forced drivers off the road. Officers also said that Denver drove her vehicle at deputies and their cards, hitting one of the patrol cars. Denver refused to surrender to officers who finally used a tazer to arrest her.

According to Assistant District Attorney Tim Kendall, Ms. Denver recently pled to two felony counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, her vehicle, and one felony count of evading. She received a sentence of 365 days in custody and 5 years formal probation.
