GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) - Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport officials say some runways were briefly closed as police responded to a driver who led them on a chase and refused to exit her car.

Officials said Wednesday that airport police arrested the woman after she held them at bay for more than an hour after a traffic stop on airport grounds.

Officials say the woman initially led police to a remote area near a Federal Aviation Administration tower. She refused to exit her car for more than an hour as police tried to communicate with her, then drove away, was stopped again and arrested.

An airport statement says no charges are being filed while the woman is hospitalized for evaluation.

An FAA spokesman said fewer than 10 flights were delayed.
