PHOENIX (AP) - A Mesa woman who was naked when she stole a sheriff deputy’s vehicle and led officers on a 70-mile pursuit that ended near Eloy says she was dosed with drugs before the incident.

In a jailhouse interview, 31-year-old Lisa Ann Luna says she had taken methamphetamine in the past but on Thursday when she stole a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office pickup truck she had been poisoned by a relative.

Luna says a cousin put drugs in her food, causing her to hallucinate and panic. She says she felt like her skin was burning and she was possessed at the time of the incident.

Luna had told a deputy she had been sexually assaulted before stealing the truck, though she later admitted to being high on drugs..
