    A Dallas woman accused of going on what police describe as a drug-fueled driving rampage says she doesn't remember the incident but regrets what happened.

    A Dallas woman is in jail after police say she went on a drug-fueled driving rampage that damaged several cars.

    Reshonda Fields was booked into the Dallas County Jail on one count each of driving without a valid license and evading arrest, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and three counts of criminal mischief.

    In a jailhouse interview, Fields said her 15-year-old son and her boyfriend were stressing her out.

    The stress prompted her to not take her medication for her mental health. Instead, she smoked "wet," a street term for PCP, she told police.

    But Fields said she doesn't remember anything about what happened next.

    "Look, I don't remember nothing," she said. "I'm just saying, I blanked out."

    Police said Fields drove through an intersection near Hampton Road and Wright Street and then ran into several other cars. According to police reports, she kept driving for about two miles until she crashed into a pole. The report states that her car caught fire, prompting police to break the window of her car and pull her out.

    According to the report, she told police, "I just had a bad day. My kids are testing me. My baby's father won't make him mind."

    The report also stated that Fields told officers she had fun driving erratically.

    At least one of the people she hit sustained minor injuries.

    Fields said in her jailhouse interview that even though she doesn't remember anything, she regrets what police said she did.

    "I'm sorry," she said. "I'm sorry. I don't want to hurt nobody. I really don't."

    Fields remains in jail on a $58,000 bond.
