The situation began near 103rd Street and Sunflower Road around Clearview City when Johnson County sheriff deputies pulled over the suspect. As the deputy approached the car to make contact with the driver, she took off seeking to hit the deputy with her vehicle. The pursuit began through rural Johnson County and the driver led police to K-10 Highway where she headed west towards Eudora and Lawrence. At that point Douglas County sheriff deputies and the Eudora police department were able to lend a hand and placed stop sticks to disable her car. The stop sticks flattened one of her tires, but the woman continued on before giving up the chase a couple of miles later.
She was arrested on several charges, including possession of methamphetamine.
