Bail set at $20,000 for woman in high-speed chase
It was the second time in less than two months she had been arrested for investigation of drunken driving, officials said Thursday.
A Washington State Patrol trooper tried to stop the woman's car that was headed northbound on I-5 near Everett, but it sped off shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday.
The Everett woman, 23, made numerous lane changes and reached speeds of 95 mph in a posted 60 mph zone, according to court papers.
She also drove through a stop sign after leaving the highway. When she stopped, she refused to obey orders to get out of her car.
Troopers eventually broke out a window to arrest her.
She reportedly had watery, blood-shot eyes and a red face and smelled of alcohol. Her blood alcohol level was more than three times the state's legal limit, according to results from a portable breath test.
Her license already had been suspended, court papers said.
