Arrest in Wild Chase Through Downtown

(La Porte, IN) - There was a police chase through the City of La Porte yesterday. The pursuit ended near Westville with the driver in handcuffs.


According to La Porte County Police, 39-year old Judith Taylor was reported to be driving

in the opposite lanes of U.S 20 just after 8 a.m.


A short time later, a responding officer had to pull over to avoid a head-on collision with her on

Fail Road. Police said the pursuit went through the downtown on Lincolnway, and oncoming motorists were forced off the roadway by the fleeing vehicle as it continued westbound.


More drivers veered the road to avoid a collision until the pursuit ended on 300 South just west of U.S 421. Deputies boxed her in between a house and tree line, police said.


The Michigan City woman was charged with multiple counts, including resisting law enforcement and criminal recklessness.
