SWEETWATER (CBSMiami) – A day after a chaotic scene played out at the Dolphin Mall leaving one officer hospitalized and two people jailed, police confirmed the identities of the couple arrested on numerous charges including battery against a police officer.

The couple identified as 32-year-old Herbert Wilson and 27-year-old Cassandra Davis were booked into Miami-Dade County jail sometime after 8 a.m.

Wilson and Davis are both charged with resisting officer without violence and fraudulent use of a credit card. Davis faces more charges: Aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer with a deadly weapon, fleeing and eluding police at a high rate of speed, credit card fraud.

Police say it all began when Wilson and Davis were accused of committing a crime inside the mall. When police arrived Thursday night, the pair jumped into a car in an attempt to flee.

“Security did alert my officer. My officer tried to stop the vehicle,” said Chief Roberto Fulgueira of Sweetwater PD.

The Sweetwater officer ran to the scene, police say, but the pair allegedly ran him over with the car. Another nearby officer then fired shots at the car.

Wilson got out of the car and ran toward the nearby Marriott hotel while Davis stayed in the car and police arrested her.

Police say the man went inside the hotel to use the restroom. Then, police say, he came outside, hid in the bushes, and called for a cab. They drove off.

“The police coming behind me, they stopped me on the expressway,” said the taxi driver.

Police arrested the man on the 836 expressway near the I-95 South. The cab driver says he never felt threatened.

“No, nothing, nothing,” he said.

It turns out the cab driver had already been tipped off about the suspicious passenger.

“I don’t know nothing about it. They called me from the hotel saying something happened with this guy,” he said.

Police were able to track the cab’s movement — leading them right to their suspect.
