Officer Baker allegedly found what seemed to be marijuana and a white powdery substance while attempting to arrest her, prompting him to call for backup.
When he threatens to apprehend her, Baker tells her to “turn around,” “No hold on, don’t put me in handcuffs, I haven’t done anything wrong”.
Holbert then becomes hysterical and flees the cop, returning to her car.
Before tasering Holbert, the officer tells her to get on the ground.

Holbert, on the other hand, easily draws a pistol and aims it at the cop, who yells: “Ma’am, put the gun down! Put the gun down!”
As he returns fire, the suspect shoots several shots at the officer’s body, causing him to fall on the ground.
She then tosses her pistol to the ground before fleeing the scene, her car window broken by gunshots. When she reverses, blood can be seen on her side through the open car door.
Holbert was later involved in a car accident at the intersection of Brick Church Pike and Moorewood Drive and was rushed to Skyline Medical Center, where she died.
