TROY, Ohio (WDTN) — A woman is facing charges after leading officers on a chase in Miami County.

Police were originally dispatched to a church Sunday morning for a welfare check after they received reports of a woman wandering around and talking to herself.

When officials arrived, the woman got into her car and a chase ensued.

Police said she attempted to run over officers in her SUV. They said she went off the road near Piqua-Troy Road and did doughnuts in a field. They said when officers approached, she tried to ram their cruisers multiple times.

According to police, she got back on Piqua-Troy Road and proceeded northbound. Deputies with the Miami County Sheriff’s Office deployed stop sticks but she reportedly drove around them and tried to run over officers.

Officials said she stopped the vehicle at Piqua-Troy and Eldean roads but she took off again and led officials on a pursuit.

Police said she stopped in the 4000 block of Piqua-Troy Road where officers broke out her windows to reach her after she ignored multiple commands.

She was placed into custody and taken to Upper Valley Medical Center for evaluation.

A Miami County Sheriff’s Deputy suffered minor injuries during the attempt to enter the vehicle and when the suspect allegedly bit him.

The Miami County Animal Shelter was called to the scene to remove a dog that was in the vehicle with the woman.

The woman’s name and charges that she will face have not been released.
