LAWTON, OK (KSWO) – A Lawton woman was arrested Wednesday night after her suspected shoplifting lesson ended when she hit a security guard with her vehicle and tried to get away.

Police say 48-year-old Sherry Shera Pierre ran from Central Mall after a stolen North Face hoodie set off the alarms at Hibbett Sports. Witnesses saw Pierre throw the hoodie under a kiosk and continue running toward her car. By the time security guards caught up to Pierre, she was already in her vehicle.

The first security guard stood behind her car as two others approached. Pierre put her car in reverse and bumped him. The security guard moved out of the way and was then in front of her vehicle. Pierre started driving toward him and he jumped, ending up on the hood of her car where he clung to as she sped through the parking lot.

Pierre hit a parked vehicle, which threw the security guard from her vehicle into the vehicle she hit. She then took off and hit a cement pole. Her car was disabled when she hit the pole, so she and her niece tried to run away.

Two soldiers saw what happened and chased them until they caught Pierre and her niece at South Railroad Street and ‘D’ Avenue.

Employees at Hibbett Sports told police it looked like Pierre was trying to teach the girl how to shoplift.

A preliminary medical report showed the security guard may have suffered from a separated shoulder.

Pierre was taken to the Lawton City Jail and booked for shoplifting, child endangerment, assault with a deadly weapon, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and an outstanding county warrant.
