Lawrence woman arrested after leading police on chase through town

No one injured during chase

A 25-year-old Lawrence woman was arrested after leading police on a car chase through town early Friday morning.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, the incident began about 2 a.m. in the parking lot of Kwik Shop, 1714 W. 23rd St. The woman was driving erratically through the parking lot, which caught another officer's attention. The car the woman was driving had expired tags, so the officer attempted to make a routine traffic stop.

Sgt. Bordman said the woman refused to yield and drove away. The officer pursued the woman, who was reported to be in her early 20s, as she drove through multiple traffic signs. The woman was not driving at a high rate of speed, but continued to refuse to yield. The woman made her way onto the KU campus, driving faster than the posted speed limit. Another Lawrence Police Department officer set a spike strip in front of Strong Hall, 1450 Jayhawk Boulevard. The woman drove over the strip about 2:08 a.m., effectively deflating her tires.

Sgt. Bordman said the woman's vehicle slowed considerably after running over the spike strip and she was eventually stopped at 19th and Maine streets.

According to arrest logs, the woman was arrested for fleeing and attempting to elude officers, driving without insurance, having an open container in the vehicle, reckless driving and obstruction of legal procedure.

Alright weatherboy, you need to re-read the article because the store was Kwik Shop, and the person who wrote the article got it right. I suspect you shouldn't post after a night of drinking. What were you reading/drinking/smoking anyways?

KUweather was correct. The story was updated since his post with the correct location. It was a Kwik Shop, not a Quik Trip.

I bet she was just texting and had no clue the cops were trying to get her to pull over.

and also...

RoeDapple, are you retarded? Serious question.

Oh man. If this woman's friends or relatives get on here to defend her, I want to change my guess for the 1000000th post to tomorrow @ 5:04 p.m. If this woman happens to have illiterate friends or relatives, my guess will be midnight. If there somehow is a Loveseat with someone's entire life savings stuffed into it plus illiterate friends/relatives plus a crappy blue ford escort, my guess will be today at noon.

I am just glad there was no accident where a person had to be life-flighted to a hospital far away cause alcohol was involved.

Chesseburger, Because the Lawrence Journal World doesn't print the local news. You'll have read the Topeka or Kansas City Star to find out what is happening in Lawrence!!! The information is public information and is given to the newspapers. THE LJWorld just refuses to print it or are selective in what they print.

autie, shouldn't the question to shadowbox have been, "You don't stay in much, do you?"

Heck, I'll cut shadowbox some slack for not knowing the history. Besides, I think most of us regulars probably are retarded to some degree, with some of us more retarded than others.

My only question about the story is, was it a Chevette?

beatrice 8 years, 9 months ago

Darn frenchies. Guess they don't shop at "Targét" for that very reason.

RoeDabble and autie, I'm not joking when i say this, I really do not understand anything you two are saying. Not only is it difficult to understand your typing skills, but I don't understand what points you two are making???

RoeDapple 8 years, 9 months ago

shadow, It will take you just this side of forever, but read this article and related posts. you almost have to read every post to make sense of it all, but for those of us involved it had tears in some of our eyes from laughing so hard. Yeah I know, makes some of us look a little.......
