Police in Phoenix were finally able to stop a woman suspecting ofdriving under the influence after she refused to pull over last Tuesday. They initially received a call about a woman driving the wrong way down 101; when police caught up to her around Cave Creek Road the woman's truck was traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes.
A joint effort between the Scottsdale Police Department and the Department of Public Safety was able to control traffic on 101 while other officers pursued the woman. The woman, undeterred by the chase, was finally stopped when officers employed a PIT (pursuit intervention technique) after trying stop sticks first.
The driver, Amber Nevel, 42, will probably face charges of unlawful flight, criminal damage, endangerment and DUI. Luckily nobody was injured in the vehicle chase on Tuesday.
