Indiana State Police arrested a New Jersey woman after leading police on a high speed chase. Troopers say the woman smiled at them during the pursuit.
ISP says just before 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, a trooper saw a Honda HR-V traveling at a high rate of speed on the Indiana Toll Road, two miles west of the Middlebury exit.
The trooper caught up to the Honda about 5 miles later and activated his emergency lights for a traffic stop. The troopers says the Honda continued westbound, reaching speeds over 100 mph.
The trooper was able to pull up next to the Honda to motion the driver to pull-over. The trooper says the driver looked over and smiled at him, and continued to flee.
Several miles later, the trooper tried again to get the driver to pull over, and she continued to smile at the trooper.
ISP deployed stop sticks near mile marker 81. This safely deflated the driver’s tire, and she was taken into custody.
ISP identified the driver as 36-year-old Temple Jordan, of Berlin, NJ. She was taken to the Elkhart County Jail.
Jordan faces a preliminary charge of a felony resisting law enforcement, and citations for speeding and driving on a suspended license.
