A 21-year-old woman from Springfield is in the Greene County Jail, charged with resisting arrest, driving while intoxicated and assault on a law enforcement officer.
Authorities say Lana Aberle led them on a chase early Sunday morning that started in southwest Springfield, went to Republic, then into Christian County and back to Greene County.
Officers say they initially tried to stop Aberle on suspicion of drunk driving, but she sped away from officers. They say once Aberle was back in Springfield, she ditched her car on South Ferguson Street. Springfield police found the car. Greene County deputies were later able to locate Aberle and make an arrest.
The sheriff's office says Aberle may face other charges.
