A van fleeing police at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour overnight was stopped by a tire deflation device placed on Chinden Boulevard in Garden City, police said Sunday.
Marie Anne Autiello, a 45-year-old Nampa woman, was charged with felony eluding police. She was also charged with five misdemeanors: DUI, driving without a valid license, inattentive or careless driving, resisting or obstructing officers and littering.
The pursuit began at about 2:10 a.m. on Chinden Boulevard. Idaho State Police asked Garden City for assistance in stopping the fleeing motorist.
After hitting the stop sticks, the van came to a stop at 8100 block of Chinden Boulevard, near the U-Haul store just west of Glenwood Street.
The van's driver, later identified as Autiello, refused to follow commands by officers. She was apprehended by a police canine and suffered minor injuries, police say.
