The incident happened after officers responded to a call for a woman who was contemplating suicide at the Cumberland River. 

New information revealed that Officers Eric Mumaw and Trent Craig tried to talk her out of the car on the edge of the river.

She reportedly asked what would happen if she drove into the river and the officers responded they'd try to save her -  that's when police said she put the car into gear. 

Officer Mumaw was the only one who didn't survive. 

Glisson allegedly admitted to drinking seven or eight beers. Her blood alcohol level was almost 3 times the legal limit.

Police said she was already on probation from a DUI – meaning she's also facing a probation violation charge.
