Woman Arrested After She Led Police on a Golf Cart Chase and Sprayed a Fire Extinguisher at People at NSU

Nova Southeastern University was on a brief lockdown Monday, as police chased the woman.

A woman who went on a rampage using a fire extinguisher on people during a golf cart chase at Nova Southeastern University was arrested Monday, authorities said.

Dori Marshall Cash, 43, appeared in bond court Tuesday afternoon and was ordered held on $19,600 bond.

Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley said if Cash posts bond, she is banned from entering any schools in the state of Florida, she must wear a GPS monitor and must undergo a psychosocial mental health evaluation while on pretrial release. She is also not allowed to consume any alcoholic beverages or possess any firearms or ammunition.

Cash was arrested on charges of grand theft auto, making a false report of a bomb and interfering with school functions, jail records showed.

The university was on a brief lockdown Monday as police chased her near the school's dental clinic and the Miami Dolphins training facility, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

"The female stole a lab coat, commandeered a golf cart and was spraying people with fire extinguishers as she drove around," Davie Police Capt. Dale Engle told the newspaper.

Later, Cash abandoned the golf cart and got a landscaper’s vehicle, police said.

Officers ran after her until she was finally caught. The incident ended at 1 p.m., the newspaper said.

"As far as we know, she has no relationship to Nova," NSU's Executive Director for University Relations Dave Dawson told the newspaper. "She came onto our campus and acted in a threatening manner. We called police and they were quick to respond."

Dawson said the woman was apprehended quickly and added that everyone at the school was safe.
