A woman is behind bars after leading authorities on a high speed chase on I-20 eastbound on Sunday.
Just before 7:40 p.m., a Madison Parish deputy initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Mary Tarver. Tarver failed to yield for lights and sirens, leading authorities on a pursuit that exceeded 100 miles per hour.
Delta Marshals joined the pursuit at the 182 mile marker and spike strips were deployed, damaging two tires on Tarver’s vehicle. Tarver continued on I-20 east and then drove off the side of the interstate, plowed through a gate and came to a stop under the Mississippi River bridge in Delta, Lousiana.
Tarver was arrested on multiple charges and taken into custody by the Madison Parish Sheriff’s Office. A passenger in the vehicle was also taken into custody, but would later be released with no charges.See a typo? Report it here.
