Shantel Davis, 23, was gunned down Thursday night in a stolen car after she blew through three red lights, hit a minivan and tried to escape by driving in reverse.
Now sources reveal Davis was first collared in February last year for driving on a suspended license after she was pulled over for driving through a red light.
She was pulled over a month later for running a red light and was caught tossing marijuana from her car, sources said. Cops also found a gravity knife in the vehicle and charged her with criminal possession of a weapon.
On May 5, 2011, she was arrested with two others in Brooklyn for allegedly kidnapping a 29-year-old man, who was shot three times during the wild ordeal. Davis was booked on charges that include kidnapping, attempted murder, assault and burglary. She was released on $25,000 bail in December last yearand was due back in court on Friday, the day after she was killed.
