EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Police in Evansville say a suspected shoplifter led officers on a 25-mile-long chase sometime before she was arrested.
The chase began Tuesday evening after the car hit another vehicle on the city’s east side, then fled from officers on Interstate 164.
Police Sgt. Jason Cullum tells the Evansville Courier & Press the 40-year-old female driver topped 100 mph and crossed the highway’s median from the northbound lanes into southbound traffic. She drove back into the city, where she stopped and was arrested.
Cullum says several items possibly stolen from a Wal-Mart were found inside the woman’s car. She faces preliminary charges including theft, resisting arrest, criminal recklessness and drug possession.
