Mental fitness may be questioned in the case of a Springfield woman charged with dragging a Fayette County Sheriff’s Deputy with her car during a late April traffic stop. 18-year old Adriana E. Brown made an appearance in Fayette County Court on Wednesday with defense attorney Monroe McWard. During what was scheduled to be a pre-trial hearing, McWard informed the court that Brown had recently been hospitalized due to mental health issues. Because of that development, McWard informed State’s Attorney Josh Morrison and the court that he will likely be filing a motion for fitness. Should a motion for fitness be filed, an examination by a doctor could be ordered to make sure the defendant is fit to stand trial. Another court date has been set in the matter with just counsel set to appear on June 15 at 10am. Brown is charged with Aggravated Battery as information states Brown allegedly “used her car to inflict road rash and other injuries to Deputy Stevens” after Stevens was drug a distance until he could free himself from Brown’s vehicle after Stevens allegedly detected the odor of cannabis and viewed a baggie containing a white powdery substance before Brown took off from the scene of the traffic stop with Deputy Stevens partially in the vehicle after reaching in to retrieve the alleged narcotics. The count is a Class 2 felony and is punishable by three to seven years in prison. Brown is also charged with one count of reckless conduct, one count of aggravated fleeing and one count of obstruction of justice, all Class 4 felonies that are punishable by one to three years in prison. Brown is also charged with six traffic violations.
