Lawyer seeks treatment for Brookfield woman in CT Hummer chase

A Brookfield woman accused of injuring seven police officers this year remains in custody while her lawyer said he is trying to get her into a rehabilitation program.

Hannah Casperson, 25, faces numerous charges in connection with a months-long crime spree in which police say she broke into dozens of vehicles to feed her drug addiction. In an attempt to evade authorities, Casperson led police to Monroe, where she rammed her Hummer into several police cruisers and crashed into a telephone pole.

Casperson was arrested in April. Her attorney, Daniel Thibodeau of Minnella, Tramuta & Edwards, said at the time that the Brookfield woman was frail and had suffered a broken femur and dislocated hip.

Casperson appeared in State Superior Court in Bridgeport last week where, according to Thibodeau, she looked “a lot healthier” and was “walking a lot better.” Casperson’s case continued through Nov. 30, according to the Chief Clerk’s Office.

Thibodeau told the Hearst Connecticut Media Group that he is trying to get Casperson into a long-term inpatient treatment program while the case is pending.
