(UNDATED) – A Kalamazoo woman has been arrested after leading authorities on a chase in northern Indiana.
The Indiana State Police say just after 6 PM Monday, an off duty trooper notified his colleagues about a gray Ford Edge that was speeding and driving recklessly at it was traveling north on U.S. 31 near the Marshall County and St. Joseph County line.
A short time later, troopers located the vehicle as it was exiting U.S. 31 onto the U.S. 20 bypass and headed east. Troopers attempted to make a traffic stop near U.S. 20 and Elm Road after the Ford committed several traffic violations. When the trooper turned on his emergency lights, the Ford pulled to the right shoulder of the road and almost came to a stop before abruptly speeding up and pulling back into traffic.
The suspect vehicle continued driving east, refusing to stop for troopers. Near the intersection of U.S. 20 and County Road 23, a trooper used stop sticks and deflated the front tires of the Ford, but it continued to flee from the police. It disregarded a stop light at U.S. 20 and State Road 15, turned north onto State Road 15 and eventually came to a controlled stop.
The driver of the Ford, 29 year old Jaci Miller of Kalamazoo, was safely taken into custody and charged with resisting law enforcement and reckless driving. Troopers discovered Miller did not have a valid driver's license and the license plate on the Ford was expired.
