LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Former mayoral candidate Connie Marshall was arrested Tuesday afternoon after police said she led officers on a brief pursuit.

Police say Marshall came to LMPD Tuesday because she wanted to file a report for LG&E trespassing on her property.  She was advised that they could not do that. Police say she became agitated and disorderly. 

Two officers were called her to escort her out of the building. As they took her to the car, one of the officers began to explain why they couldn't take a report against LG&E, when police say she took off in her vehicle, nearly striking the officer.

The officer is expected to be OK.
