44-year-old Selma Elmore stopped Officer Dan Lyons on South Wayne Avenue about 2:30 a.m. Friday, police said.
Elmore asked the officer: Is there a curfew for adults in Lockland?
No curfew, Lyons responded.
Second question: Is there a warrant for my arrest?
Yes, in fact there is a warrant, the officer told her after a quick check.
Lyons had discovered Elmore was wanted for allegedly failing to pay a fine as a result of a drug-related conviction, said Sgt. Patrick Sublet.
Elmore took off running, leading the officer on a brief chase that ended when she shoved him into a building, injuring his elbow, Sublet said.
