No officer was struck during the incident.

Police said Hall got out of the car and ran away. Officers arrested the driver of the car after they said a gun was recovered from inside the vehicle.

Another woman was also arrested because, police said, she interfered with the officers' investigation and arrest.

United States Marshal Peter Elliott said, “Once the details of this assault on the Cleveland Police were relayed to the members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, our officers made it a priority to locate and safely apprehend this violent suspect. We stand together with the brave men and women of the Cleveland Division of Police, who risk their lives to protect our community.”
