Fort Worth – Police Chase Leads To Bomb Investigation



UPDATE: From WFAA News

The episode started in Arlington as a road rage incident on the 1,000 block of Abram Street.

“Someone called in to say there was a person in another vehicle who pointed a weapon at them. Officers found that vehicle and tried to conduct a stop but that vehicle did not stop and as a result, officers conducted a pursuit,” said an Arlington Police Department spokeswoman, Tiara Ellis Richard.

The chase went on for 20 minutes but came to an end when the truck spun out on Rosedale.

Officers took into custody a man and a woman.

WFAA has learned that the woman is Kimberly Homsi. She also goes by the name, Asma Al- Homsi.

According to the WFAA story, Al-Homsi has been under surveillance and was on the government’s no fly list, since being involved in a road rage incident back in December 2005. She held up an inert grenade and threatened another driver. Garland’s bomb squad later found ammunition in her car.
