    They're replaying excellent citizen video of a portion of the chase after it had gotten underway.

    Right up in front of the camera she came T-bone up against the sidewalk, pointing into the camera, with half a dozen officers around the front of the car and some behind, handguns drawn; after some seconds she guns it forward onto the sidewalk and turning hard right, necessitating some of the officers jumping aside, and then took off at high speed.

    That doesn't seem like the reaction of anyone in a normal frame of mind, having been stopped and being surrounded. Even a fluency problem wouldn't explain the behavior there, half a dozen drawn guns needs no translation.
