Warrant Issued For Mayville Woman Who Struck Squad Car

7/25/17 – A warrant has been issued for a Mayville woman who is accused of crashing into a police vehicle under the influence of illegal substances. Cierra Metz failed to show up for her initial appearance yesterday for Operating Under a Controlled Substance Causing Injury First Offense. Last July, a Mayville squad car was travelling southbound on Walnut Street when a vehicle operated by Metz allegedly pulled out from an intersection. The officer attempted to swerve to avoid the crash but ended up colliding with Metz. He was treated at Beaver Dam Hospital with injuries to his neck, back, and head. According to the criminal complaint, when questioned by investigators Metz eyes were glassy and bloodshot. Later she reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana before the crash and taking cocaine the day prior. The 19-year-old and her passenger were not injured. Metz submitted to a voluntary blood draw which tested positive for cocaine and THC. If convicted, Metz faces up to one year in jail.
