Around 8:15 p.m. on Oct. 2, police were called to a location in La Habra regarding a report of a stolen vehicle hitting an occupied police car, the La Habra Police Department said.
The suspect, later identified as 26-year-old Niqwayzh Green, led police on a chase throughout Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties, KABC-TV reported.
During the chase, Green allegedly rammed into additional police cruisers, took out a fence and drove in the wrong direction on Highway 91, officials said.
Green reportedly abandoned the damaged truck and dodged vehicles as she fled the scene on foot.
As she ran across a parking lot, she lost a wig she was wearing, KABC-TV reported.
Green attempted to hide inside a Denny’s restaurant, and she allegedly brandished a gun, police said.
“There was only one guy in the restaurant and she ran in, flashed a gun, and ran out to the back," an employee at Denny’s told KABC-TV. "The cops came in right away after her."
