North Tonawanda woman nearly hits police car, charged with felony DWI

A North Tonawanda woman who police said has had her driver's license revoked four times was charged with driving while intoxicated in the City of Tonawanda Thursday morning after she nearly struck a police vehicle.

Heather R. Kelly, 38, of Oliver Street, also was charged with resisting arrest for allegedly kicking police officers while being taken into custody, City of Tonawanda police said.

Kelly was pulled over at about 4:45 a.m. near Gibson Street and Prospect Avenue after she came close to hitting Police Officer Thomas Harmon's vehicle as she turned from Prospect, police said.

Kelly, who had a prior DWI conviction in 2013, was charged with felony DWI, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, driving without an ignition interlock device, second-degree harassment and two counts of failure to yield, police said.

She refused to submit to a breath test and also refused to be booked at the police station, so she was placed in lockup until she cooperated, authorities said.
