Lakeisha N. Holloway

Update:
The woman who drove her car onto a sidewalk along the Las Vegas Strip, killing one person and injuring 37 others, has been identified as 24-year-old Lakeisha N. Holloway, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Joe Lombardo said.

Prosecutors will initially file a single charge of murder with a deadly weapon against Holloway, District Attorney Steven Wolfson said. Additional charges are possible, including multiple counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, leaving the scene of an accident and child abuse/neglect, Wolfson said.

Previous story, published at 12:56 p.m. ET
A driver veered onto a crowded sidewalk several times on the Las Vegas Strip, injuring more than 30 people in what authorities described as an "intentional" act.

At least one person was killed and 37 others injured near the Paris Las Vegas Hotel on Sunday night, authorities said.

Witnesses said the woman was driving down Las Vegas Boulevard before her car jumped onto the sidewalk and started striking pedestrians.

She allegedly drove the 1996 Oldsmobile sedan with Oregon plates onto the sidewalk at different spots and hit more people before barreling down the road.

'Not an act of terrorism'

Police arrested the driver, and she is undergoing tests for alcohol and controlled substances. A 3-year-old in the car with her was unharmed.

Holloway has been homeless more than once. During a press conference, Metro Sheriff Joe Lombardo said that she had been in Las Vegas for a week, homeless and living with her child out of her car.
In the same article a cousin says she was “a successful, overachiever.”
And another says she was “a sweet and loving mother who had recently been living in Texas before returning to the West coast. She said around that time, Agum noticed a change in Holloway and she had a completely different attitude when she returned.”

So here we have it:
It’s TEXAS’ fault!

Was Las Vegas Strip Attack "Black Lives Matter Terrorism"? Most current indicators point toward "probably".

Woman Driver, Screaming "Allahu Akbar" Runs Over 40 people on Las Vegas Strip
Super Station 95 ^ | 12/21/15
Posted on 22/12/2015, 8:45:42 AM by LdSentinal

A woman in a car with its windows down screamed "Allahu Akbar" as she ran up onto the sidewalk and ran-over upwards of 40 people in Las Vegas last night.

According to one eye witness "As we were walking accross the street, this car comes flying through the red light. She ran up on the sidewalk and smashed into a group of people walking accross the street and into the group of people at the corner. She did not slow down and appeared to accelerate as she hit the sidewalk."

According to that witness. there is a huge row of plants and bushes seperating the sidewalk and the strip, but the woman driver ran through both, at a speed he guessed to be 40-45 miles per hour. "People were flying off the front of her car and people were smashing into other people as she plowed through the crowd."

The witness went on to say "As this unfolded, the only thing I recall as this happened is the insane sound of her car accelerating and the voice from the car was screaming "Allah Akbar!" I've heard the sound enough times on the news that I was waiting for a bomb to blow up or guns to start firing. "

According to Police, 37 people were hit and one person was killed. Six of the victims were listed in Critical Condition but they have since been upgraded to stable.

The crash occurred about 6:40 PM local time in front of the Paris Hotel & Casino, and Planet Hollywood. Police are quite explicit in saying the crash was intentional.

This was an act of Islamic Terrorism, perpetrated by an Islamic woman driving a car with a three year old child inside, who INTENTIONALLY rode onto the sidewalk to strike innocent people. Police, however, have been instructed by their superiors to NOT use the word "terrorism" in relation to this incident, because Las Vegas does not want tourists to be frightened away from the city.

Good grief. I read about this last night and watched the live presser.

I remember hearing early on that they cleared it as "an act of terrorism". Was relieved.

Need to catch up on the story. This is sad. So many innocent ppl involved.

Lakeisha Holloway officially charged with murder in Las Vegas rampage
FoxNews.com | December 22, 2015, 2:45PM ET


Lakeisha Holloway was officially charged on Tuesday afternoon in the rampage that left one dead and at least 35 injured when a car repeatedly rammed pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday night.

The Clark County District Attorney’s Office announced in a press release that it had charged Holloway with one count of murder with use of a deadly weapon, one count of child abuse, neglect or endangerment and one count of leaving the scene of an accident.

DA Steve Wolfson said during a Monday news conference that the death penalty was a “consideration.” The charge of leaving the scene of an accident is non-probational and is punishable by up to 20 years in prison under a new law that went into effect just two months ago.

Holloway is set to make her first court appearance at 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

She could still face more charges in the future, including several counts of attempted murder.

Suspect in deadly Las Vegas crash appears before judge
December 23, 2015, 11:53 AM

LAS VEGAS - A woman accused of intentionally plowing a car carrying her child through crowds of pedestrians on a Las Vegas Strip sidewalk faced a judge Wednesday on charges of murder, hit-and-run and child abuse.

Her lawyer simply requested a 30-day status check, according to CBS affiliate KLAS in Las Vegas. In the meantime, she will be held without bail until her next hearing on January 20.

Lakeisha Nicole Holloway's initial court appearance did not reveal why authorities say the former award-winning high school graduate mowed down tourists and put her 3-year-old daughter in danger.

Holloway, 24, plans to plead not guilty, according to Joseph Abood, one of her public defense attorneys. In Nevada, the plea is assumed during a first court appearance. Holloway won't be asked to answer the charges until another hearing in coming weeks.

Report: Driver in Strip sidewalk crash had marijuana in her system
LasVegasSun.com | December 30, 2015


A 24-year-old woman accused of driving onto a Las Vegas Strip sidewalk, killing one person and injuring at least 35 others, had marijuana in her system, according to results of a toxicology report released today.

Tests showed that Lakeisha Nicole Holloway had more than the Nevada legal limit of pot and its metabolic byproducts in her blood when she was arrested shortly after the Dec. 20 crash, Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said.

However, Wolfson and prosecutor Marc DiGiacomo said the test results didn't change the initial charges of murder, child endangerment and felony hit-and-run pending against Holloway.

"The amount of marijuana and marijuana metabolite does not appear to be enough to affect her mental state at the time of the crime," DiGiacomo said. "She intentionally drove into the crowd."
[...]
Coffee noted also that the results undercut the findings of a police drug recognition expert who examined Holloway following her arrest and reported that she appeared to be under the influence of a stimulant.

"It's good to see the concerns about ... some kind of stimulant weren't borne out," Coffee said.

Lakeisha Holloway, Accused of Las Vegas Sidewalk Attack, Could Face 1,000 Years
By Alex Johnson | NBC News | January 20, 2016


Lakeisha Nicole Holloway could face more than 1,000 years in prison if she's convicted of numerous new charges brought against her Wednesday for allegedly mowing down dozens of pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip, killing one and injuring dozens more.

Holloway, 24, who is originally from Oregon but had been living in her car with her 3-year-old daughter at the time of the incident Dec. 20, was arraigned Wednesday at the Las Vegas-Clark County Regional Justice Center.

Prosecutors dropped a preliminary count of leaving the scene of an accident, but their amended criminal complaint added numerous battery counts, for a total of 71, including one count of open murder with use of a deadly weapon, 30 counts of attempted murder with the use of a deadly weapon and two counts of child abuse.
[...]
Court records showed that Holloway, who remains held without bond in protective custody, is next due in court February 4.

LAS VEGAS (AP) A 24-year-old woman accused of intentionally plowing a car into a crowd of pedestrians on a Las Vegas Strip sidewalk never made it into court, and a judge postponed her appearance.

Holloway’s attorneys didn’t immediately respond to messages. They’ve said she plans to plead not guilty.

I did too! That's why I went back to look and did the edit.
The article kinda makes it sound like she was an off the street no-show.

Hope she didn't pull a "Chism fit" in her cell. :)

Hi LR :28
That is so funny .. bet you are right. :Gslap
-----------------

She didn't show up AGAIN for the rescheduled February 18th hearing either. :TF

This is what I found re her missing the earlier hearing.

    The 24-year-old woman was so unruly during her last scheduled court appearance in early February
    that she could not be brought into the courtroom.

    She could be heard screaming by those inside the courtroom.

A competency hearing is set for Friday, March 11th at 9:00AM.

Competency hearing is only to determine one thing and it is not sanity v insanity and has nothing to do with Lakeisha's crimes, competency just determines whether she at this moment in time can assist in her own defense. Ignore any fancy shenanigans around it, that is what a competency hearing in Nevada is about. And now for the real comeuppance to Lakeisha, Nevada is a "GBMI" (Guilty But Mentally Ill) state which means she may be found to have been legally insane during the commission of her crimes BUT Nevada will through medication and therapy try to get her to mental well being and once they do they can try her for her crimes. There are a few caveats but she will never be out of a world of cinder blocks again.
