ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The woman who got away after state police shot at her in Albuquerque only to show up at a hospital 80 miles away faced a judge Thursday.

According to a criminal complaint when New Mexico State Police arrived at an apartment complex near San Mateo and I-25 to arrest a woman for fraud and forgery they say 28-year-old Roxanne Torres ran towards her car in a parking lot.

When police approached her, they say Torres sped towards them, that is when both agents fired at both the car and Torres.

The complaint states that Torres later hit another car, crashing shortly after.

According to witness she then took off in a stolen car.

She later popped up at Cibola General Hospital but was later flown to UNM Hopsital with a gunshot wound to her arm.

Court records show she has a slew of charges including pending felony charge.

Thursday a judge set bail at $100,000.
