But that aside, the facts are as follows:
The suspects panicked and threw various items at Boco (in particular, one large purse which was later found to contain the license of Elizabeth Parker). Authorities were called by neighbors concerned at the alarming shouts of distress, both human and bovine, coming from the farm. Upon arriving at the farm, police attempted to detain Ms. Reynolds and Ms. Parker, but Ms. Reynolds instead took off in her car. The pair was arrested without incident after a high-speed chase that ended with Ms. Reynolds claiming that she thought the police were most certainly chasing someone else and as a good citizen she just was just trying to get out of their way.
As of press time, Ms. Mertz had no comment.
