Macomb County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 22-year-old woman after she allegedly led them on a wrong-way chase on Metro Parkway in Harrison Township.
Deputies were attempting to pull over a car for speeding in the predawn hours of Thursday on North Pointe Parkway. However, Macomb County Sheriff Tony Wickersham says, the female driver sped off.
"She was fleeing because she had warrants. She didn't want to go to jail, but in the end, she did," Wickersham said.
The sheriff did not elaborate on the outstanding warrants.
The pursuit led to Metro Parkway, where the fleeing car began speeding westbound in the eastbound lanes. Deputies broke off the pursuit before the car veered into the median and the driver tried to run away.
Sheriff Wickersham said deputies caught up with her.
"They were pursuing her on foot. They brought in a K-9 that was able to track the scent from the vehicle to a home. Basically she entered the unlocked door of a garage and she was hiding in the garage," Wickersham said.
Deputies said 22-year-old Amanda Mog refused to cooperate with them, so they used a Taser to subdue her and make an arrest.
A 32-year-old woman who was a passenger in the car stayed in the vehicle. Sheriff Wickersham said she was about to be released when a quick turn of events got her into trouble.
"As she was getting out of the deputy's vehicle, he noticed what appeared to be a package of cocaine. At that point, she was taken into custody, was searched and we found packages of cocaine and she will be charged at a later date," Wickersham said.
Amanda Mog had her car impounded and she is jailed, facing charges of fleeing and eluding police, resisting and obstructing officers, and entry without permission.
