A Buchanan woman wanted on multiple charges was arrested Monday night after leading deputies from two different agencies on a pursuit through Henry and Calloway counties.
Molly Elizabeth Armour, 38, 1170 Dogwood Thicket off Buchanan Road northeast of Paris was arrested about 9 p.m. in Calloway County.
According to the Calloway County jail, she was charged with first degree fleeing or evading police, first degree wanton endangerment of a police officer, speeding 26 miles over the posted speed limit, driving on a revoked license and other charges by Calloway County Sheriff’s Deputy Brandon Winebarger.
According to the report by Henry County Sheriff’s Sgt. Blake Jenkins, she will also be charged with felony evading arrest, felony reckless endangerment and driving on a revoked license in Henry County.
Jenkins said he was patrolling on Rabbit Creek Road in northeast Henry County when he noticed a white Mercedes-Benz with dark tinted windows drive by him.
When Jenkins attempted to stop the vehicle at the intersection of Rabbit Creek Road and Highway 119, the driver of the Mercedes refused to pull over and began evading, heading north on Highway 119 in the direction of Kentucky.
The Mercedes turned onto several side streets as the driver, later identified as Armour, continued to flee, and the pursuit eventually crossed into Kentucky.
A Calloway County Sheriff’s Deputy joined the chase and was able to execute a pit maneuver. The maneuver, used by police to end pursuits, caused the Mercedes to lose control and come to a stop.
Armour attempted to flee the scene again, but Jenkins blocked the vehicle with his patrol car.
Calloway County deputies broke the driver’s side window in order to remove Armour from the vehicle, and she was placed under arrest.
After further investigation, officers learned that Armour was wanted in Henderson County on an aggravated assault charge.
She was also wanted in Stewart County for violation of probation and in Kansas for failure to appear in court.
She is currently being held in the Calloway County jail on a $10,000 bond.
