        A disturbance call led to a damaged police car, an injured officer, a crash, and eventually an arrest.

        That's according to Lexington Police who say they were called to Ash Street just before 3:30 Tuesday afternoon. 

        Officers say when they got there, someone in a car took off, hit an empty police car and almost hit an officer and a pedestrian.

        They say they followed the car until it crashed into a utility pole at Newtown Pike and Main Street.

        Investigators say when an officer approached the car, she was trying to eat some drugs, so the officer had to break the window and use a Taser in order to get her to stop.

        They say they saw a crack pipe and some crack cocaine in the car.

        The officer involved was Ricky Lynn.

        He hurt his hand, but did not go to the hospital.

        Police arrested Taranita Black who did go to the hospital.

        She will be charged with wanton endangerment.
