MESA, AZ — Stop sticks were used to stop a woman after a 23-mile pursuit on US 60.

DPS reports that on June 25 around 2:30 p.m., a trooper witnessed a Toyota 4Runner running a red light on US 60 at Superstition Road. The SUV driven by Kathryn Frances Herman, 42, pulled over and then took off before the trooper could get out of their patrol vehicle.

As she fled, Herman reportedly made aggressive lane changes, tailgated drivers and drove at speeds more than 95 miles per hour. After 23 miles, Herman was stopped by stop sticks.

DPS says they found meth in her vehicle.

According to court records, this is not the first time Herman has been arrested for unlawful flight.

She has been charged with unlawful flight, drug possession, and reckless driving.
