(CNN) – A naked woman in a stolen truck led police on a wild chase in northern Arkansas.

Arkansas State Police tried to pull over 48-year-old Deidra Lewis on March 25 after the truck she was driving was reported stolen. Police pursued her for about 10 miles down Interstate 40 near Lamar before a tire-puncturing spike strip forced her to pull over.

When she got out of the car, she took off her clothes. An officer then tackled her.

Lewis faces charges of aggravated assault, theft of a motor vehicle, criminal trespassing, reckless driving, disorderly conduct and fleeing. She is set to appear in court on May 13.
