Prosecutors say 26-year-old Breanna Mickles is charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury crash. She was ordered held Wednesday on $25,000 bail.
Police say she was driving near 13th and Cass streets around 8:30 p.m. Monday when she jumped a curb and hit bicycle Officer Romina Perez. Police say Mickles then fled the scene; other officers stopped her near TD Ameritrade Park.
