On October 4, 2018, Cpl. O’Connor of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office was in the 22700 block of Three Notch Road in California, when she observed traffic was at a standstill at a green light, and heard numerous car horns.

Cpl. O’Connor observed a 2008 Nissan passenger vehicle sitting stationary in lane 1, with its hazard lights activated.

Cpl. O’Connor approached the vehicle, at which point she observed the operator of the vehicle on her cell phone, and also saw two juvenile children in the vehicle. The operator of the vehicle refused to roll her window down, and Cpl. O’Connor could observe the operator of the vehicle to have glassy eyes. The operator continued to refuse to roll her window down, turned her vehicle on, and sped away, nearly striking Cpl. O’Connor. Cpl. O’Connor attempted to stop the vehicle, however the operator refused to stop, ran several red lights, cut off several vehicles, and almost collided with a vehicle stopped in a turn lane.

The operator was unable to operate her vehicle within a single lane, and repeatedly operated her vehicle utilizing two lanes.

The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Bernadette Marie Walker, 47 with no fixed address, ultimately stopped the vehicle in a parking  lot of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, at 22375 Three Notch Road, in California.

Walker refused to allow the juvenile children to open the doors, or exit the vehicle.

Police attempted to have Walker cooperate and get out of the vehicle for approximately 10 minutes before they broke the driver side window and extracted her from the vehicle.

Emergency medical services were requested to the scene to check the condition of a 10 and 16 year-old child.

Walker arrested and charged with the following

  • Child Neglect (2 counts)
  • Unsafe Lane Changing
  • Failure Yield Right of Way on Left Turn
  • Attempt by Driver to Elude Police In Official Police Vehicle By Failing To Stop
  • Attempt by Driver to Elude Uniformed Police By Failing To Stop
  • Driver Fail to Stop at Steady Red Signal (3 Counts)
  • Reckless Driving
  • Negligent Driving

This case remains open pending possible additional charges.

    What a POS!
    You endangered the lives of those children as well as the general public.
    Then the kids have to see you get busted.

    I hope they lock your ass up for a very long time.

    She showed that cop. Mother of the year!

    And the mother of the year award goes to..

      Murher f’er of the year – I feel for the kids but if that’s the kind of mother she is maybe they are better off without her. Follow the laws, obey the police and you avoid jail.

      Took my exact words.

    I led a deprived childhood, having grown up in a nuclear family and never having seen a parent or guardian forcibly removed from a vehicle in which I was riding. Thankfully these children have had this enriching experience, and most likely, will have it again.

      A nuclear family?

      • Deprived on October 11, 2018 at 1:48 pm

        You probably pronounce it “nucular.”

    Them dang ray-siss cops targeted the black community again. Clear case of driving while black, you heard

      Shut up with that BS already. She’s a piece of trash.

        You’re clearly an idiot for not seeing the sarcasm.

    Yep.. saw her driving on SB 235 blowing through intersections in California with a single police car in tow. Wasn’t going particularly fast though. As I continued NB, I then saw 3-4 more police cars racing SB to apparently join the pursuit. I was wondering who was driving that Black Nissan.

    Clearly the woman was upset. Prayers for this woman. We all have had the worst day in our lives brought on somewhere unintentional and we all handled it differently. Some better than others.

    • Stop&Think on October 11, 2018 at 7:51 am

      Yeah … I can’t help but wonder if there is a mental issue. Her actions sounds like she was more confused and scared than confrontive. I’m hoping that she’ll get a mentall evaluation.

      Blah blah blah shut up you liberal clown.

    How about attempted murder of her kids and the other innocent people on the road she could have killed.

    • R-E-L-A-X on October 11, 2018 at 9:01 am

      Take it down a notch. Why is it that EVERY single time there is some sort of crime, people want “attempted murder” charges. Relax.

        Word!

    All of those charges don’t really mean anything. The two counts of child neglect may stick if she doesn’t have access to a lawyer or chooses to represent herself in court. She’ll get off with 1 year unsupervised probation and about 12-18 hours of community service. Anything that will put her license or driving record in jeopardy will not even be a thought.

    • Oh we have a celebrity expert here! on October 12, 2018 at 9:30 am

      Thank you judge Jeannie.

      • Isaac Charles Parker on October 13, 2018 at 8:30 am

        Or maybe just a voter who pays attention to the sentences handed down by SOMD judges. Keep voting Democrat, and this is what you will keep getting.

    Wow! And once out the vehicle she still acted crazy! Now she will have to get a new window or trash bag it when she’s released to do it again. What a P.O.S to endanger those kids and others on the road!

  12. Spank on October 10, 2018 at 11:55 pm

    This os a homely, broke down looking chick. Lock her high ass up!!

    • Garret Johnson on October 13, 2018 at 8:57 pm

      She just trippn, that’s all. Next week she will be a guest on The View. Then, they will all start yelling and blame the situation on Trump.

    The video look like a Silver Nissan… On Friday the 5th, there was a similar incident with a Black Sedan at the Rt4/235 intersection.

    • Big Cookie on October 13, 2018 at 7:59 pm

      How on gods green earth can you identify the make, model and color of her vehicle, from this video?
