A nearly naked woman from Florida was brought under police custody on Saturday following a car chase with the police, according to authorities.
The woman attempted to evade arrest through driving a stolen vehicle.
The call for response to a motor vehicle theft report was received by the troopers at around 10 a.m. on Saturday. The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) said that the 2009 Cadillac sedan was spotted traversing I-75 in Sumter County.
The car was seen on Hernando Country’s interstate. Troopers tried to flag it down at a traffic stop.
Instead of following the signal, the vehicle flew away quickly, ran 110 mph and cut across different lanes. It also used the roadway shoulder to lead other vehicles.
Based on the arrest report, authorities came to a halt next to the stolen car to urge the woman to go out the interstate.
The driver did exit the interstate toward State Road 52 in Pasco County.
The troopers then utilized a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle.
They eventually got the driver from the car and identified her as Rachel Lynn Stefancich, 24. She was placed in the authorities’ custody.
The highway patrol said the woman was seen “nearly fully unclothed” when she was caught.
The arrest report furthered that a glass pipe used for methamphetamine smoking was found inside the vehicle. There was also a substance found that was believed to be meth.
Authorities also found out that the woman’s license was suspended.
The suspect said that her aunt owned that car and that she was permitted to use it.
Stefancich faces several charges including grand theft auto, reckless driving, possession of methamphetamine, and fleeing and eluding.
She will also pay the consequence of driving with a suspended license.
