Woman, 41, arrested for attempted murder in Wahiawa after she allegedly drove toward officers

Honolulu police arrested a 41-year-old woman Wednesday after she nearly hit two police officers when she attempted to flee a parking lot in a stolen vehicle in Wahiawa, police say.

The woman, identified as Candice Williams, was due to appear in court this morning for a separate auto theft case that occurred two weeks ago, court records show.

In Wednesday’s case, police spotted her in a parking lot inside a stolen vehicle in Wahiawa just before 10:20 a.m. Police approached her when she drove toward two officers, nearly hitting them, police said.

Williams also struck three police vehicles as she attempted to flee, police added. Officers apprehended her on Kamananui Road, about a quarter-mile from the Wilikina Drive intersection. No injuries were reported.

Police arrested her on suspicion of two counts of first-degree attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, three counts of criminal property damage, one count of promoting a dangerous drug in the third-degree, unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and auto theft.

Court records show Williams was charged in a separate auto theft case after she allegedly stole a vehicle at the Aiea Shopping Center on March 2.

She was released from custody after posting $30,000 bail bond and scheduled to appear at her March 11 arraignment at Circuit Court. When she failed to appear, the state requested a bench warrant for her arrest and a judge postponed the hearing to today, court documents show. She also did not appear at that hearing.
