Tire rolls off during police pursuit, Battle Creek woman arrested

SPRINGFIELD, Mich. (WOOD) — A Battle Creek woman is facing several felony charges after a 10-minute police chase that ended when a tire rolled off her vehicle.

Investigators say it started around 12:15 a.m. Monday in the area of Dickman Road and Carl Avenue in Springfield when Calhoun County Sheriff’s deputies tried to stop the woman’s car for running a stop sign.

Investigators say the driver continued on, taking deputies and police through Springfield and into Battle Creek before the suspect lost a tire and finally stopped near Webber Street and LaVista Avenue. Deputies say the driver then ran away but was quickly arrested.

The woman was arrested for fleeing and eluding police, resisting and obstructing police, operating while intoxicated, driving on a suspended license, possessing marijuana and driving a vehicle with an improper registration plate.

The driver remained in the Calhoun County Jail Monday morning awaiting arraignment.

The two passengers inside her vehicle were not injured and released at the scene.
