Ohio woman caught eating cereal while driving, leads police on 30-mile high-speed chase


COLUMBUS (WCMH) – A woman is behind bars after an overnight police chase that went on for nearly 30 miles.

According to investigators, it started when a Madison County deputy noticed a woman driving erratically on Interstate 70 near U.S. 42.

After stopping the car, the deputy noticed that the woman behind the wheel was eating a bowl of cereal. During the traffic stop, deputies say the woman took off, driving toward Columbus.

The pursuit reached speeds up to 100 mph. Stop-sticks were used near downtown Columbus, but failed to end the chase.

In the area of Weber Road and Reis Avenue, the car began to break down and the woman got out of the car and tried to run, according to investigators. She was then cornered by deputies and arrested.

Police have not released the identity of the woman. She was arrested for driving with a suspended license. Deputies say additional charges are likely.
