GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A woman being held in the Harrison County jail is accused of driving naked and impaired when she led deputies on a high-speed pursuit on Interstate 10 two weeks ago.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1F02HXK) 52-year-old Stephanie Lynn Steele, of Bay St. Louis, has been held on a $60,000 bond since her April 22 arrest. Judge Diane Ladner reduced her bond Wednesday to $5,000.

Deputies say Steele drove at speeds up to 120 mph, weaving through traffic.

When her car ran over stop sticks blowing out a tire, she finally stopped.

Deputies walked up to the car and Steele, wearing no clothes, told them she had been drinking.

A court document shows Steele has requested a public defender.
