BURLINGTON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – A Harwinton woman is accused of trying to hit a police officer with her car Thursday after apparently ranting about President Trump and cops abusing the rights of citizens.

State police say 58-year-old Eileen Pierce tried to hit an officer directing traffic at a tree-trimming site on Route 69– allegedly driving her Subaru wagon directly at him, yelling out the window, and shaking her fist. The officer quickly got out of the way, and police say Pierce narrowly missed hitting a tree crew.

When Pierce was pulled over at the Burlington-Bristol line, troopers say she rambled for several minutes, saying she was upset with police and that officers are being murdered because they tend to abuse people’s rights — noting she was angry that Donald Trump is president.

Pierce was arrested on charges of second-degree attempted assault with a motor vehicle, first-degree reckless endangerment, reckless driving, and failure to drive in the proper lane in a construction zone.

She was held overnight on $5,000 surety bond for arraignment in Bristol Superior Court. Her first court appearance is scheduled for Friday.

    Liberals are fascists.

    1. Liberalism is a mental disorder…..go to my Webpage on Facebook ,search,, ,the cure for any cancer, ,its free, the cure itself is so easy you can do it yourself at home, and it works 100%, cost 2-3$…..People spending over 100.000$ for a cure, at the end they still DIE….. plus many more information you never heard of. GOD created Human Beings 1+billion years ago out there in our Universe, learn how they live and travel, they are far, far ahead of us, why 1/3 of the Angels rebelled against GOD, no Man has seen GOD, I did, find out what happen, it is a must read, you will be glad you did

      1. Robert Watts says:

        Not much to say to you except you are living proof that God forgot to give you a brain.

    2. Robert Watts says:

      Hate to tell you AH but you left Rehab WAY to soon – your brain is still fried – go back quick

    1. Sam Jones says:

      I think you forgot the C. 🙂

    2. Rani Dawn says:

      Add a C and you’ve got your mom! 😍

      1. Oh that’s funny, like saying the best part of you ran down your older sisters leg. Sad but true.

    3. John Oakman says:

      And she was driving a SUBARU—you know” it’s love, that’s what a Subaru is all about”. Idiot.

      1. No, its: “Love. That’s what makes a Subaru.” 🙂

      2. John Schmidt says:

        Smart people drive Subarus. It has nothing to do with their sanity.

  2. Mark Mullins says:

    Liberals are tripping over themselves reminding us just how mentally imbalanced and dangerously unstable they really are.

    1. Robert Watts says:

      God and I just love that GOP hatred talk of over 1/2 of America – don’t you Trumpettes never passed math – that is more than every other neighbor of yours. Sorry God Trumpettes talk about the bible buy have never read it.

  3. Dave Spysea says:

    you are going to see more of this …. Liberalism, as exemplified here, is a psychosis

  4. illinoisatlarge says:

    If if were still the Lynch DOJ, this would be perfectly legal and a permitted expression of free speech.

  5. The same number of people were arrested during the Berkeley riot as in this incident. Maybe they will label her an anarchist not an inspired product of the rhetoric promoted by the press and liberals too.

  6. Rob Bennett says:

    4 Years in PRISON ought to cool her jests some. STUPID BI*CH

    1. Jay Lewis says:

      Not in Connecticut where the judges all hate Trump. She will have her charges dropped without any trouble.

  7. Barry Hirsh says:

    ‘Sounds like a candidate for the rubber room.

  8. Please put her down. She is a rabid Democrat mutt. Further death and destruction will follow if she is released into the public.

  9. These Liberal’s were Nutty Fruit Cakes long before Trump became the People’s Choice!!!!

  10. “She was held overnight on $5,000 surety bond for arraignment in Bristol Superior Court.”

    The judge should give her the maximum penalty allowed. What a idiotic snowflake.

  11. David Chance says:

    Doesn’t seem to be her first instance of the crazy…see about 3/4 down this story


    1. John Oakman says:

      But,but she bees a goot girl,gettin’ her life back together and go’in to colledge.

  12. Watching the meltdown of the fascist left is both tragic and heartwarming. While spiraling in their death throes, they will increase their scorched earth policy and destroy everything in their path.

    Thank God the officer is safe, but how many will die at the hands of the left?

  13. If she turns out to be a “person of color” they will no doubt forgive her or otherwise let her slide. Minorities always get lenience because of their ethnicity. If she’s a white woman, they will throw the book at her. Any takers?

    1. John Oakman says:

      But if she is a leftie white woman–all will be forgiven.

    2. You’re crazy, being a woman she will get off light, they ALWAYS do, color is irrelevant. It’s called THE GIRL CARD. And EVERY female uses it, one time or another.

  14. Liberals should be medicated at all times or they are a danger to the Nation.

  15. Bill Smith says:

    Typical demented Leftist suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Everything bad in the world, even if it is an act that they commit themselves, is somehow Trump’s fault.

    Lock her up and get her back on her meds.

  16. Mike Arvand says:

    And the meltdown continues. Parents – this is what happens to your kids when you don’t teach them personal responsibility. Get off the progressive parenting bandwagon. Teach your kids to be grownups, not snowflakes.

  17. How dare the police unions endorse that maniac! They should have put the straight jacket on her and made her spend some time in a rubber room.

  18. Jack Inmanz says:

    We all know that crazy chicks are best in bed, but maybe they shouldn’t watch the news.

  19. Tom Ronson says:

    Anyone want to wager a taco that this woman is a black radical? Lots of them running loose in Connecticut.

  20. Tom Ronson says:

    12000 people have posted on twitter, that trump should be killed. I’d be happy with just watching Pelosi and Schumer knocked of.

  21. Definitely mentally unbalanced – A large fine is the solution and maybe she will think twice before reacting to her emotions.

  22. these liberals cant be reasoned with…liberalism is growing more facist by the day..more anti white…

  23. Proving once again that liberalism is a mental illness

  24. Hahahahahahahaha. Take away her right to vote. LIberalism is a mental disorder.

  25. Pat Roy says:

    Liberals lie and progressives are violent, FACT.

  26. Jezebel American women are beside themselves with angst at having a non-beta, non-simp as President. All these angry women protesting shows just what arrant, self entitled, man haters they are. Feminazi’ism has been great for America.

  27. Jason Watson says:

    It looks like it is time to start rounding up the leftists and cutting them out of society like the cancer they are.

  28. More proof of the insanity of liberalism, the same people who were all giddy and LOLing thru the obama years right up to the night TRUMP mopped the floor with that pant-suit.

    Now they insist on suffering permanent butt-hurt over anything TRUMP says or does. And at the rate of actions TRUMP is taking, there is just not enough time to process all the butt-hurt coming their way.


    They might want to get some ointment for that.


  29. Gal Murphy says:

    This must be another example of the “Going high when they go low” Michelle Obama talked about. Gee, who knew that’s as high as they can get!

  30. She sounds like the woman I had to have arrested for trespassing because of her anti-Trump rant and who refused to leave my private business on private property.

    She incorrectly believed she was in a public place and could say anything she wanted to say. The Sheriff and DA didn’t agree with her and the DA threw her in the slammer for three months to teach her a lesson. I didn’t even have to show up to testify against her, the DA had enough law enforcement officers to testify against her.

  31. Liberals , ALL of them, should be spayed and or neutered!! at least until a cure is found!!

    And women should not be allowed to vote and or drive!! ever!

    1. Paul Roberts says:

      Just send all liberals to Saudi Arabia. Women cannot vote or drive and must be covered in a burka, and have curfew. They cannot walk alone without an escort. LGBT are executed on the spot with their heads chopped off. Liberalism at its finest. Why else would they want to import the middle east to America?

  32. Amy Amrap says:

    Leftist are violent, degenerate, and low IQ.

  33. another mentally ill liberal carrying out an act of terror.
    we’re getting everything but the allahu ahkbar.

    liberalism is a cult.

  34. Oh, to be able to live in so many different people’s heads at once, rent-free! That’s winning!

  35. Hope they keep this up. Pretty soon they won’t be able to win the Dog Catcher’s seat.

  36. Paul Roberts says:

    “she was upset with police and that officers are being murdered because they tend to abuse people’s rights — noting she was angry that Donald Trump is president.”
    No excuse for attempted murder of a police officer. Slap the book at her and force psychological exam. Make her a felon, and have her enjoy the Women’s prison.

  37. Well, she’s just a woman, so let her go. Even if she kills someone, she’s not a man, so she must have a good reason for doing it. I for one am in favor of letting her go.

  38. Do you really need to read more articles about how insane Liberals are. COO COO COO COO… and dangerous.

  39. Chet Kimmel says:

    Another crack smoking liberal…

  40. Larry Carnes says:

    I remember before the election we were being bombarded with images that tried to tell us that Trump supporters were willing to incite violence and were constantly beating up people. Anyone remember when the media was telling us that ‘Trump supporters were shoving women?’ Now we have liberals inciting riots and trying to run down policemen but hey that’s ok because they are angry over TRUMP so it’s ok…right?

    1. John Schmidt says:

      The liberals are actually blaming the speakers for inciting the riots by showing up to speak.

  41. once sessions is AG, hopefully the RICO act will be put into effect…these maggots don’t know what is heading their way. i believe protestors paid to disrupt and crossing state lines is a charge prosecutable under RICO

  42. Net Netty says:

    another LoveTrumpsHate’r. These are some sick people

  43. Chuck Costin says:

    The article could have stopped at Subaru. That explains everything.

  44. jsolbakken says:

    Yes, the answer is, we must ban the importation of the high capacity Assault Subaru. It’s only purpose is to kill police officers, obviously.

  45. Floyd Martin says:

    More Blue state non sense!
    It will not change this election and you know what?
    It will not change the next Election either!
    The Blue state will still be Blue and the Red states will have become Extremely RED!

  46. Sam Colt says:

    Drop the old hag off on the inside lane of the I5 at midnight tonight.
    If she can make it off the pavement alive, her lesson will be learned.
    If not, then her debt is paid.

  47. Donald Welch says:

    if this had been a guy chirping about hillary he would get at least three years. she will get two one hour counseling sessions with an airhead feminist shrink then be on her way to starbucks, zumba and shopping for more pink shoes.

  48. Breaking News…the woman just returned from DC and was seen eating at Besta Pizza and contracted Podestitis

  49. Jack Riley says:

    Hillary voters are bat c rap crazy.

  50. Lock her up and throw away the key. Was she black!

  51. John Schmidt says:

    Trump has created a lot jobs…..for therapists.

  52. That’s the Connecticut I remember.

  53. krew09 says:

    if it is being reported by CBS,it MUST be true.

  54. Loos like Eileen sprung a coil or something, prob a friends of Cankles, pro drugged or drunk. LOL

  55. hahahahaha

    sorry, lady… I got nothing else for you.

  56. Political leftists are truly the most scary people on earth. There is not telling when one is going to snap and run you over in their car, or commit some other act of violence against the innocent.

  57. Teddy Coral says:

    She was so close to having Hillary in the White House! So close! The white man ruins her life again!

  58. Liberalism should be handled on an in-patient basis in insane asylums. Treat them by with episodes of Rush Limbaugh 16 hours a day. When they can demonstrate an understanding of Conservatism as well as Liberalism, they can be declared cured and considered normal members of society. Until then, they are unpredictably violent and a danger to others and to themselves.

  59. Suibne Geilt says:

    why no picture of the perp? …oh…..that’s why.

    1. They do that to make you click. In this case the perp is white. I googled her.

  60. jcx2 says:

    This woman should lose her drivers license. She is mentally unfit to drive, and heaven only knows who else she would try to run down. She exhibits a sickness that seems to need a name…lets try “ObamaCultMadness”, or “SorosAholicsUnited”…maybe just “DNCPsychosis syndrome”. Any or all works for me.

  61. Trump could literally walk on water and turn water into wine but yet there would always be someone out there saying what a terrible man he is. Trump is doing GREAT things for us all! It’s time we sit back and witness GREATNESS in action! First time we’ve ever had a President like him, cherish these days! 

    Americans wanted our country back. Our jobs were being taken away. Our healthcare is too expensive. Mine is $600/month now (AND RISING!). My car insurance is still $25 per month (from Insurance Panda), but who knows when our  socialist government will come in and muddle that up? Things are getting more and more expensive as it is. Can we really afford to support the world’s homeless?   

    It’s time we busted up the old establishment elites, the Bush’s the Clintons and all the regimes that handcuff our government.

  62. Funny how people that didn’t like Obama never did anything like running over cops or hiding in safe spaces or dropping to their knees and screaming when he was sworn in as President. People are so divided over this and the stupidity meter is off the charts. I am amazed every day that people behave like this and think that there is no consequences for their actions or behavior. To quote Bill Murray in Groundhog Day – “You make your choices and you live with them”. Throw the book at this woman.

  63. Get this Hillary Clinton disciple to the funny farm now.

  64. Gary Heil says:

    When I lived-in uber liberal San Francisco I knew a Marin County woman who broke a date because she had a court appointment. I asked what for. She said she had rammed a police car. Hasta la vista baby!
