HANOVER – On October 12, 2023, Hanover Township Officer Mike Puskas charged Ms. Laura Godlesky, 30, Caldwell, with Obstruction. The incident unfolded during a routine traffic stop when Ms. Godlesky attempted to evade authorities while Officer Puskas was in the process of verifying her documents inside his patrol vehicle.

The situation took an alarming turn as Ms. Godlesky sped away from the scene, even though she had a child in her vehicle. Given the heavy traffic conditions at the time, Officer Puskas wisely chose not to engage in a pursuit, prioritizing safety.

In the aftermath of her escape, law enforcement conducted diligent checks on her known residence, but they yielded no results. Determined to address the situation, Officer Puskas prepared a warrant against Ms. Godlesky, charging her with Obstruction and Eluding, in addition to several motor vehicle violations, including driving with a suspended license, operating an uninsured vehicle, impeding traffic flow, driving on a marked course, failing to surrender license plates, and failure to notify authorities of a change of address.

Furthermore, it was discovered that Ms. Godlesky had multiple active warrants against her, totaling $4,500.00 in outstanding fines. To ensure her apprehension, the warrant was promptly entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database.
