Last evening, a female officer of the Newport News Police Department, VA conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle. At some point during the encounter the driver accelerated, dragging the officer. The vehicle fled the scene and crashed nearby in the area of 16th Street and Walnut Avenue. The male driver was taken into custody after the crash.
The officer was transported by medics to a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
Our hearts are with the Newport News community, police department, and all those affected by this senseless tragedy. The officer has not been identified at this time, pending a press conference today by Chief Drew.

Terrible loss, condolences to her family. Thankful for her service to her community. I am sure they will reveal that the suspect is well known to Law Enforcement and addicted or mentally ill. Happening all over the nation, Sickening.
My heart brakes. My deepest sympathy to her family, friends, colleagues, neighbors and all the lives she touched.
So sorry to hear of this senseless taking of another Officer in the line of duty. May God comfort her family and we thank her for her service to the New Newport Community. 😢🙏🏼❤️
This is such a sad reoccurrence of a very sad senseless killing of another one of our Police Officers. May God comfort her family and bring peace to the Newport Community she served. Rest In Peace dear Officer, you are a hero in our eyes.❤️🙏🏼😢
Unbelievable, this nation is losing respect for law enforcement. The sad part about it is that there are some politicians that use hatred of LE as their campaign platform
So very sad!!!!! So senseless! God bless the family of our brave Officer and the law enforcement community and keep everyone safe. Incredible tragedy!! 🙏🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸
Prayers for this senseless tragic loss- my heart and prayers go out to this brave officer and her dearly loved ones 😢
My heart goes out to the family of this officer. I pray for their solace and strength on the difficult days ahead
My sincere condolences go out to her family, friends and fellow officers. Such a tragedy….may she Rest In Peace. 😢💐🏅🇺🇸
Praying~~~moments of silence~~~in remembrance and respect and family comfort
Officer Katie Thyne is the officer killed in horrifying accident. 2 suspects arrested! Hearts broken forever. 🙏🙏🙏❤️
Adding my prayers for her family and co-workers
My deepest sympathy to this brave officers family.
Rest In Peace brave Officer, you are a true American Hero.
This is so wrong! This poor community, department and family must suffer at the hands of some selfish person! Condolences to all.
Prayers for her family in blood and blue 💙🖤
So sorry to hear about this. Prayers going out to her family and Newport PD
This is so terrible. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends and colleagues.
Such senseless tragedy!
This is happening way too often. The police should actually be able to pull someone over and have them automatically get out of the car with their hands up if not, the police can use a stun gun
My deepest condolences to family and friends.
How tragic for her department, and the LE community.
My solution to all the hate crimes against law enforcement would get me in trouble, but most of you know what it is.
Why?? It’s a traffic stop put him under the jail so sorry for her family blood and blue 🙏🙏😇
Thank God he was caught!!! Condolences to her family, friends, and department.
Hook him up on the back of a car & Punch It until nothing is left!! Pure Justice ⚖️ 👁4👁
😥. Prayers for her and her family.

Tonight we remember Placer County Reserve Deputy Arthur “Art” Laguna. On this fateful day in 2007, Art was in Baghdad, Iraq flying as a civilian contractor for security company Blackwater.
Art’s team was responding to support a U.S. Embassy convoy that had come under attack. Art’s helicopter came under small-arms fire and was shot down. Art, along with three others, did not survive the crash.

Thank you for always remembering my Dad!! It means so much to me. I know he loved flying for the Placer Country Sheriffs Department and was very proud of the work you all do! I was thankful for the outpouring of support you gave to our family and for everything you did for us at his service! I believe my Dad continues to fly above and watch out for all of us❤️
I knew Art. He was a great guy. His family should be proud of him
I was there that day. Was first on scene at the crash site. Rest in peace brother to you and the other american warriors that lost your lives on this day.
One solid Man. As are all the Laguna's..
I flew with him in the 126th air ambulance and were officers together at Folsom, he was well liked and remembered fondly.
I thank you for your dedicated service to your community and our country. You are a true hero Deputy Laguna. May you continue to Rest In Peace. 💐🙏🏻🏅🇺🇸

Every single person I took to jail, I always asked them what station they wanted to listen to and I put it on. It made for a much better and nonaggressive ride down to the jail.
my partner and I experimented with this in the early eighties in North Sacramento with CHP. We found that playing classical music really calmed down prisoners and they were totally mellow by the time we got to the jail. But when we played rock and roll they were all hyped up and combative.
Not that I know what jail is like, but I feel like the ride there would be worse. 😜 lol
Ask them what they like, then put on the opposite…..😂
The Folsom Prison Blues……
Reminds me to rewatch the Blues Brothers…good times!
Honestly there are no other types of music and hey they still give you a choice 👍
KLove they need a come to Jesus meeting!
Love the Blues Brother reference. Ever play name that tune on the way to jail?
I would put on good old rock and roll. They hated it….Or Rush Limbaugh…
Bad boys! Bad boys! Whatcha going to do when they come for you!!!
Good idea !
Johnny Cash/ Jail house blues?
lol. Placer County is the best!
Back on the chain gang
Jailhouse Rock? Those Cheek-splittin' Blues?
Just play AC DC highway to hell
Play this: youtu.be/DMjSSVuNDFw
on repeat the whole way there. REALLY LOUD!!!!

Your mom was a Warrior, in every sense, protecting the public.
She never wanted you to suffer like this. Im so sorry for your loss. She did her duty and I hope you can feel as much pride in her as you do feel the anguish.
Deepest condolences to you. 💙
I can only imagine your pain. But do know this. There are hundreds maybe more than thousands of us who stand with you. We know your sacrifice. We know your mommy’s sacrifice and we do care. You are not alone. Many of us are praying for your strength and courage in this very hard time. We do care.

There are no words that can be said to take your pain away, to make you better or to bring your Mommy back. She looked like she was as fun and full of life as she was kick butt awesome, I bet you had the coolest mom around. I’m so very sorry for your loss and wish I could ease your pain somehow. You have my prayers.

That horrific incident further emphasizes the dangers peace officers face on a daily basis. The unfortunate aspect of law enforcement is a large faction of society does not appreciate it. However, the Thin Blue Line will not waver or retreat from doing what is right.
So very sorry for your loss. Sending our deepest sympathy. 😔💔💙🇺🇸🇺🇸
I’m so sorry sweetheart. You’ll have those beautiful and special memories of your Beautiful Mommy always with you. 😢
