Race Car Like Driver Arrested

(La Porte County, IN) - A 22-year-old woman is facing possible time in prison on allegations of traveling more than twice the speed limit and fleeing police.


Mia Dudeck is charged with a Level 6 felony resisting law enforcement and operating while intoxicated.


According to La Porte County Police, the northern La Porte County woman was driving a 2018 Ford Taurus when a patrol officer spotted her early Tuesday traveling at an extremely high rate of speed at U.S. 20 and Indiana 39.


Police said the officer while attempting to catch up to the car westbound on U.S. 20, was traveling 125 miles per hour but falling further behind the suspected vehicle. At one point, the officer lost sight of the car.


Michigan City Police were notified and stopped the car at 10th and Lafayette streets, police said.


According to police, Dudeck replied that she didn’t observe the officers when asked why she failed to pull over immediately. In addition, her alleged blood alcohol level was close to two times the legal limit.


Her passenger, Jessica Gall, 22, of Michigan City, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct. Police said Gall began screaming at the driver and continued to yell and demand to speak to her despite warnings to tone down her behavior.
