Apex mom sees charges dismissed

Posted September 29, 2009

— Authorities dismissed all charges against an Apex woman who told police she drove fast to evade her ex-husband.

Jamie Lineberry, 36, told investigators she drove 130 mph while trying to take cell phone photos of the vehicle she believed her ex-husband was using to follow her. Her two sons were in the back seat of her car at the time, police said.

    What???? Rescue vehicles aren't even allowed to go that fast--on the ground, anyway!

    Something stinks!!!!!!

    I think she was the only witness, and they charged her solely on her statement.

    LEO's will do nothing until you have proof. Cell phone photos would have provided the proof she needed for them to follow up with the ex. Otherwise, it would be a he-said-she-said.

    How fast was he going and why didn't he get pulled?

    Dial 911 so the LEOs will be able to file a report AFTER the victim is dead.

    There's not enough information in this story to make any comments or conclusions. This is too vague! However, she should have called 911 instead of taking pictures.
