The couple accused of fleeing from, shooting at, and then hiding from police was in court Tuesday.

Carlos Griego, 39, and Cherice Valencia, 30, were arrested after a SWAT standoff near 11th and Coal. 

They fled there after police tried to pull them over in a stolen vehicle. 

Officers say at one point Valencia rammed a police cruiser and Griego fired shots at them. 

No one was hurt. 

The two, who have a long history of drug and stolen vehicle charges, faced more serious charges Tuesday, including aggravated assault on a peace officer. 

Tuesday in court, the state asked to keep them both locked up until trial. 

A district court judge will make that call.
