ST. MARYS, Kan. (AP) - The Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a woman who it says led officers on a slow-speed chase and ran into a police car.

The chase ended in St. Marys after city police officers used spike strips on the van. Officers say the woman hit a patrol car directing that was traffic before coming to a stop.

No injuries were reported.

The woman faces charges of criminal damage to property, fleeing and eluding, DUI and transporting an open container.
