WATCH: Driver Does Doughnuts, Rams Police In Wild Ride

Told cops her name was "faith,hope and love"

Waving her arm out the window like a rodeo cowboy riding a bull, a woman drove doughnuts around an intersection, rammed two police cars and hit two other vehicles during a wild incident in Gastonia, North Carolina.

 Captured on viral video by one onlooker who also provides NSFW commentary, the woman is shown at the 2:40 mark stopping for an officer on Oct. 8. She backs away in her vehicle and begins screeching in circles around an intersection. She then clips a civilian car and rams one of the two police cars she allegedly hit. (A different video prospective is provided in footage below.)

Her wild ride comes to an end when she plows into a fire hydrant and flips down an embankment. Police can be seen removing her from the car.

A police spokeswoman told The Huffington Post on Monday that the department was still withholding the woman's identity publicly after she was held for mental evaluation. Authorities anticipated charges of assault with a deadly weapon, according to the police report obtained by The Huffington Post.

No one was injured, the spokeswoman said.

A family member of the suspect, which Fox 8 identified as Debra Lloyd, told the station that Lloyd was bipolar and off her meds.

The police noted that when asked her name following her capture, the suspect responded, "faith, hope and love."
