Crystal Gail Mangum's Record

A lot of information (almost scary in its depth) has been out there about Crystal Gail Mangum for a while. I’ve tried to avoid it, and will continue to in large part. Things like listings of where people think her children go to school simply aren’t safe or appropriate.

I will however delve further into her past criminal record. As mentioned in an earlier post TSG has uploaded the actual arrest records, but here is an AP account of her arrest, wherein she tries to run a police officer over with a stolen cab.

Crystal Gail Mangum of 211 Charles St. faces 10 charges, including driving while impaired, driving with a revoked license, eluding police, reckless driving, failure to heed a siren and lights, assault on an officer and larceny of a motor vehicle, warrants say.

At 12:42 p.m. Friday, deputy J.P. Carroll spotted the stolen cab at Angier Avenue and Page Road and turned on his lights and siren. The driver fled, arrest warrants say. The chase led onto U.S. 70, where speeds reached 70 mph. After the car traveled into a wooded area, warrants say, Carroll approached, but the taxi driver drove toward him. He jumped away, bumping his vehicle.

Further information wasn’t available, but warrants say both cars sustained damage.

This is the woman whose story Nifong apparently blindly bought?

According to The Smoking Gun she coped a plea and served probation for this joy ride.
