Woman Who Allegedly Hit Baltimore City Officers Had Prior Charges

Alycia Marie Hoffman, 25, faces narcotics possession charges as well traffic offenses

The woman that allegedly hit two Baltimore City police officers with a car on Wednesday, previously faced theft charges as a result of being a passenger in a car during a fatal accident in July 2011.  

Alycia Marie Hoffman, 25, was arrested and charged with drug possession and several traffic offenses after she allegedly struck two police officers with a car and then led a chase into Baltimore County, according to police.

Hoffman, of Bel Air, after allegedly striking the officers, led police on a chase through Northeast Baltimore, Towson, Parkville and Carney before county police cars boxed her in and forced her to a stop.

The officers who were struck by the vehicle suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to Baltimore police officials.

Hoffman was riding in a car in July 2011 with Nicole Ashley Albers when they were involved in an accident that killed 64-year-old Carolyn Dicocco in Bel Air.

Following the accident Hoffman was charged with two counts of theft less than $100, as a result of an Apirl 2011 incident where she and Albers allegedly stole a "Tower" stereo, a portable speaker case, a digital camera case, hair dye, hair reviver, a fingertip massager and headphones from a Bel Air CVS.

I'm surre ypu wouldn't mind the cops not chasing somebody who had just inflicted non-lifethreatening injuries to you n.. like a gunshot to the knee ... or a slashed face .. or .. well you get the idea..

way to go JQ !! btt he way .. this wasn't a minor traffic offense incident .. it was trying to run down two officers ..that caught the perp holding drugs .. and she was out on bail from a previous offense .. same type .. less than a week ago!! anmd by the way .. she was the one who chose to flee ...

Use your full name if you really want to comment...these B. Co. Cops were flying by a SCHOOL IN SESSION, so I have nothing to apologize for as the second cop car almost t boned a woman in a van w children at the intersection. Fast speed chases are reckless, and can hurt lots of people. If a cop ran into my wife or children as result of a high speed chase, the County would be liable, and YOU would pay. Cops have no right to speed around the County when they are not specifically involved in crime.
Holton F. Brown January 11, 2013 at 02:26 PM
MB ... yep .. the cops were speeding .. must have been doing 45 mph .. and by the way .. the perp was fleeiung city cops .. and blowing red lights .. etc .. so this drug dealing bimbo was breaking the laws in their turf .. and traffic is supposed to yeild to emergency vehicles .. and finally .. what's your problem with cops? you have a history with LEOs..
Holton F. Brown January 11, 2013 at 02:27 PM
further by the way .. school was out at the time of trhe chase ...unless catholic schools are in session after 1600 hours ...

Check out her Case Search - she's done something very similar before. Not to mention that she has 99 (YES NINETY NINE) various traffic, theft, drug possession charges since 2003. Trust me, she's not a stranger to the law (even with her poor grandfather being a retired Harco Deputy). Do a google on her - she was in the news on July 21, 2011 when she was the passenger in a car that had just left the meth clinic in Harford County. They hit my cousin's car head on and killed his wife instantly. KARMA and JUSTICE... that's what we' should be talking about.

City Police called off the chase early on. It was the County Police that engaged in the chase.
MAURICIO BARREIRO January 11, 2013 at 10:05 PM
I have represented cops on their foibles, so I understand their jobs & concerns...good people generally, but they don't get to go 65 plus mph around school grounds during school day. If cameras were available at IHM, tix would have been issued for a lot of money. And cops would have called me to rep them...30 mph over speed limit is pretty serious:-)
MAURICIO BARREIRO January 11, 2013 at 10:08 PM
Car chase was in a.m...call the station to see what time 10 cop cars were called for anything. And look up car chase procedures for Baltimore County cops.
Doxie23 January 11, 2013 at 10:08 PM
It was not a fender bender... they were hit while standing near the suspect's car and almost run over.
Doxie23 January 11, 2013 at 10:09 PM
Thank you John Q Public... I love when my family members who are police officers come home safe.
MAURICIO BARREIRO January 11, 2013 at 10:09 PM
Sorry for your loss, as it sounds horrible. No one should have to suffer life from speeding criminals or cops.
Doxie23 January 11, 2013 at 10:13 PM
The Catholic schools in this area let out between 2:40 and 3:00. Public schools let out between 3:00 and 4:00. The incident was just before noon. The school kids were safe.

the judge should had put her in jail the first time not probation
claire mccarthy January 11, 2013 at 11:39 PM
this is the girl who was in the car with the woman who crashed head on into another vehicle last year in harford county. the woman in the other vehicle was killed. charminbg.
claire mccarthy January 11, 2013 at 11:45 PM
I'm so very sorry NanaB what happened to your cousin.. That accident was heartbreaking. You would think that after that - should would have reevaluated her life. I guess drugs were more important to her than anything else.
Nick January 12, 2013 at 02:00 AM
@maurico. People like you make me sick. I guess Ishould turn to a life of crime and then just go seventy miles a. hour down putty hill and no one should chase me down. What if that dumb criminal would have run down one of your children on her way by? you'd be the first one crying how the cops didn't do enough to stop her. Thank you to the officers that apprehended this POS. I'm glad you didn't listen to some idiot who didn't want you to pursue criminals who are breaking the speed limit. It's amazing to me how stupid some people can be. If cops didn't Chase down speeding criminals what kind of precedent would that set? Oh Btw, not interested in a response, your ignorance speaks for itself.
Mark January 12, 2013 at 11:38 AM
This all took place prior to 1200 hrs.
Erika January 12, 2013 at 02:12 PM
@ Holton... School WAS in session at the time. I know, because I was working when those cops flew by and I get off when it's time for me to get my dtr from the bus stop. She's an elementary school student. If I was still at work, the kids were still in school. It certainly wasn't anywhere close to 4:00. I leave at 3:00.
Mike January 12, 2013 at 02:27 PM
Sorry NANAB.....I now see that you mentioned the fatal car crash. I am very sorry for your cousin's loss. Even more reason to pray for Hoffman's 'jail cell justice'. I know someone will whining and crying, it's not her fault....wha, wha, wha, she had a lousy childhood.....I don't feel sorry for her one ounce. She's grown, knows the law, and had the option to choose compassion, but chose NOT to......many times over! Now she'll answer for ALL of it.
Elaine Girardi January 12, 2013 at 04:13 PM
Wow. Good arguments on both sides. Bottom line......this girl needs to stay behind bars. She's a menus to society!!!
kzk January 12, 2013 at 05:43 PM
I read that also. Why in the world is she allowed to be free and not locked up with the key thrown away?!
Kaori January 12, 2013 at 07:13 PM
No one is really talking about this criminal, but if she were Black or a Black man the comments would reflect a totally different attitude.
Holton F. Brown January 12, 2013 at 07:56 PM
My bad on that .. my source sed it was after 1600 hours .. sorry for the misstep but I still support the chase ..
Holton F. Brown January 12, 2013 at 08:03 PM
here's something to be considered .. what if the cops weren't chasing her with their sirens blaring, alerting the public.. on foot and in cars.. and she's doing 70 mph across putty him and she t-boned .. or rear-ended a car // what would be you stand then ?? .. also .. if the chase was in the AM .. what would be the reason for the kids being on the street ???
Justin January 14, 2013 at 12:41 PM
She lives down the street from me. They had our court on the news trying to interview people......resale value of my home probably just plummeted. I hope she gets some help with whatever problems she is dealing with. Her grandparents always seemed like such nice people
Skeet January 14, 2013 at 08:23 PM
Kaori, You are correct. Thats exactly how it is on this site with alot of the loony tunes that post. It would be a completely different attitude
Holton F. Brown January 14, 2013 at 11:15 PM
kaori .. i'm quite sure pat mc donogh will be issuing a statement regarding bands of rampaging white women as a scorge on the county ..LOL!!

I had just stepped outside for a smoke after waking up from working night shift and I counted 15 marked cruisers and 3 SUV's with the dash and grill lights FLY past my house. Everyone of them doing probably 90mph. I've never seen, in person, police driving as fast as they were. The chase ended maybe 1/4 mile from my house, I could see the cluster of police cars from the end of my sidewalk. I don't have any problem with the police chasing at those speeds even with all the traffic on Joppa road because there isn't any other alternative except to let the criminal escape. even after seeing someone crash into the firehouse tavern a few years back during a chase I still don't think the cops should have called off the chase. On a side note, she should be locked up for assault after I was forced to look at her mug shot.
