LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) _ A New Mexico woman is facing charges after police say she fled an officer during a traffic stop and told him, ``I don't think so.''

Dona County court documents show Ricci Barnett was arrested April 21 following the exchange.

According to court documents, an officer tried to pull over the 41-year-old Barnett for driving the wrong way on a one-way street in Las Cruces, but she refused to stop. The documents say the officer made contact with Barnett as she stopped at a red light.

When the officer showed Barnett his badge, court documents say she responded, ``I don't think so,'' and drove off.

She was eventually taken into custody and charged with aggravated fleeing from a law enforcement officer and reckless driving.

It was not known if she had an attorney.
