An woman suspected of DUI was taken back into custody after Indiana police say she fled a police station … and ran to her home almost three miles away.
In a probable cause affidavit, 31-year-old Brandy Star Williams was arrested after police officers saw her vehicle hit a curb and exceed the speed limit.
She was stopped and given a portable breath test which measured Williams’ BAC to be 0.188 percent.
She was taken to a police station to undergo an official breath test.
While seated and waiting in handcuffs next to Muncie police officer Michael Rehfus, Williams “stood up and she bolted out the door.”
Rehfus’ report said that Williams then “jumped over a railing and fled on foot.”
Rehfus and other officers chased Williams on foot, but reportedly lost her about two-tenths of a mile away.
Williams was located a short time later at her home which is nearly three miles from the police station from which she had ‘hurriedly departed.’
She was taken back into custody.
Williams is preliminarily charged with escape from detention, theft, resisting law enforcement, reckless driving and driving while intoxicated.
She was being held Friday at the Delaware County jail under a $28,500 bond.
