A 52-year old woman from West Forrest Street in Bay St. Louis is currently in custody after having led state police officers on a high speed pursuit on Interstate 10 nearly three months ago, as reported by Sun Herald.
Initially her bail was set at $60,000 but a civil Judge has now amended that amount to $5,000.
The woman faces one felony charge and one count of misdemeanor. According to arresting police officers, the woman suddenly pulled up in a turn-around area meant only for police patrol vehicles. She parked right next to a cop car, she was then told by the cop that she was not allowed to use the turn-around area, at this point, the woman suddenly sped away from the area and her tires lifted off a bunch of gravel in the process.
According to court documents, the woman failed to stop despite being well aware that she was being pursued by the police. Allegedly, she was driving in and out of traffic at speeds of up to 120 mph. State police finally deployed spike strips which blew out one of her car tires and the car finally came to a forceful stop. Shockingly, when officers walked up to the car with their weapons drawn for safety, they found the woman seated completely naked and she confessed to have been drinking right away.
The police were then able to acquire a search warrant and so they performed blood-alcohol content tests for evidence purposes and then booked her into the county jail.
