A 28-year-old Loveland woman faces several charges after she fled officers in a truck reportedly stolen at gunpoint and then on foot before being nabbed in a field near Colo. 66.
D’kota Joann Loraine Haley was arrested for felony eluding, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, revoked driver’s license, criminal mischief, possession of a controlled substance and four outstanding warrants for her arrest, according to a Boulder County Sheriff’s Office news release.
The chase that reached 80 mph began about 12:25 a.m. Friday, when a deputy attempted a traffic stop near 95th Street and Niwot Road in unincorporated Boulder County. The vehicle, a gray Chevy pickup, was reported stolen at gunpoint in Lakewood Thursday morning, according to the release.
The truck also was chased Thursday evening by Westminster Police, but it eluded officers, the release states.
In the chase on Friday morning, deputies, Colorado State Patrol troopers and Longmont police pursued the truck. Stop sticks were used to slow the truck once it was in Longmont, according to the release.
The truck continued at slower speeds through Longmont until a tactical vehicle intervention maneuver was used to stop the truck about a mile north of Colo. 66 on U.S. 287.
When the truck came to a stop, the driver fled on foot eastbound through a field. Deputies and officers gave chase and were able to take Haley into custody, according to the release. She was transported to the Boulder County Jail after being taken to an area hospital to treat minor cuts to her hands from a barbed wire fence, the release states.
