STAFFORD, Va. (AP) - A woman was arrested after leading a deputy on a high-speed chase while driving a reported stolen vehicle in Virginia, authorities said.

The chase started Tuesday after the deputy attempted to stop the vehicle Lindsey Michelle Hoyle, 31, was driving in Spotsylvania County, the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. The car had been reported stolen out of Stafford County.

Deputies said Hoyle failed to stop, leading the deputy on the pursuit that went through two localities. She was eventually stopped with the assistance of the Virginia State Police and taken into custody.

She faces multiple charges, including driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and felony eluding. The release said Hoyle also had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court for a drug charge.

It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.

She is being held at a jail in Stafford on no bond.
