A woman is behind bars after a high-speed chase, but she didn't surrender easily.
2News cameras were rolling as the woman was taken into custody in the early hours of Friday morning. Video shows her struggling with police off the side of the road before her arrest.
The woman actually fought with police dogs for some time before an officer used a Taser on her to subdue her.
It all started when an officer spotted two speeding cars on Redwood Road. He approached them and was flagged down by one of the drivers.
The man told the officer that he was rammed by the other car and the vehicle was stolen from him.
Police went after the other driver, but she sped off. She finally came to a stop after running over spikes.
“As the vehicle came to a stop, it appeared that the occupant of the vehicle was not going to comply and threw a gun case out of the car. We were afraid the subject was armed,” said West Valley City Police Sgt. John Pearce.
Leigh Ann Smith, 36, was arrested on several charges including unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and a gun, fleeing and reckless driving.
Smith was taken to the hospital for treatment of wounds she received when the police dog was deployed. She is now in jail.
