WAUKESHA (WITI) -- A Waukesha doctor accused of attacking her estranged husband and leading police on a chase before she was shocked with a stun gun and arrested faces a new charge.

49-year-old Jan Doenier faces charges that include domestic abuse and eluding an officer.

In court on Thursday, May 1st, Doenier was charged with one more count -- resisting an officer. That charge stems from a March 29th incident in which Doenier allegedly shoplifted at a grocery store in Delafield. The complaint for this charge says the assistant manager decided not to file a complaint but told Doenier not to come back to the store. She apparently returned 15 minutes later -- and resisted officers trying to arrest her.

The original criminal complaint says Doenier violated a court order to stay away from the family’s Town of Delafield residence on Monday night, April 21st and struck her husband. She denied vandalizing his truck.

The complaint says she drove by a squad car with her lights off and officers gave chase. Authorities say she drove 60 mph toward a police blockage and forced officers to run to safety. The complaint says at one point, a deputy yelled “Watch out, she’s coming right at us!”

Doenier was eventually arrested at the Country Springs Hotel where officers say she refused their commands, so they used a stun gun to take her into custody.

Doenier reportedly told police she didn’t hear or see any of their attempts to stop her vehicle.

    Obviously mentally ill, and looky looky they didn’t shout her after all this. Can’t say the same for another mentally ill individual named Mr. Hamilton, no stun gun used in that case only a .40 cal. Makes you think, what made these officer show so much restraint after this woman did all of this, but Mr. Hamilton got shot, no option of a less lethal alternative. Things that make you ponder.
