JACKSON COUNTY, IN (WAVE) – A Jackson County woman is facing
numerous charges after police say she caused a chase while under the influence
Jackson County sheriff's deputies got a call around 7:00
Friday night about a possible intoxicated driver. A short time later, an
officer noticed the vehicle going down the road in Seymour with no taillights
and tried pull over the vehicle.
Police said Christy Clayton, 27, then sped away and led
officers on a chase, despite crashing into items along the way. A police report
says Clayton eventually pulled over at a house, and when an officer tried to
arrest her, she suddenly sped toward the police cruiser. The officer was able
to swerve to barely avoid getting hit.
Additional officers then joined the chase, which came to an
end when Clayton crashed into a ditch. Police said she initially put her hands
up and surrendered as officers approached her, but changed her mind and ran
Clayton fell into a ditch a short distance later and was
arrested and taken to a hospital.
Toxicology results indicate she was under the influence of
meth and benzodiazepine. In fact, the police report quotes a doctor as saying
he doesn't understand how Clayton was able to operate a vehicle.
Detectives said that as they searched Clayton's vehicle at
the scene, they found drug paraphernalia and a stolen safe. Clayton told
officers she took the safe because she thought there were drugs inside.
Clayton is facing charges of operating while intoxicated, criminal
recklessness, possession of stolen property, resisting law enforcement and
possession of a hypodermic needle.
According to the police report, when officers asked Clayton
why she ran, she responded, "I was tired and wanted to go home, and I got
scared because I am on probation."
