Female Incarcerated after Pursuit
On July 21, 2018 around 1:00 a.m. Deputies were advised to watch for a yellow sports car on Interstate 80 traveling west from mile marker 195 (between Brady and Maxwell) at a high rate of speed. Deputies located the vehicle and stopped it for traveling over the posted speed limit at mile marker 176.
The driver was identified as thirty-one year old Council Bluffs, Iowa resident Chauntl Wilson. Ms. Wilson was issued a citation for speeding and allowed to leave. As Ms. Wilson pulled away she accelerated very rapidly, Deputies noticed she again was going over the posted speed limit and checked her speed with radar. Deputies observed Ms. Wilson was traveling 142 miles per hour, westbound on Interstate 80.
Deputies tried to stop Ms. Wilson again, but she refused to pull over. A pursuit began but eventually Ms. Wilson pulled over about mile marker 162 on Interstate 80. Ms. Wilson was arrested for Willful Reckless Driving and taken to the Lincoln County Detention Center. While doing an inventory of her car, Deputies discovered user amounts of suspected Marijuana in the vehicle. Further charges may be forthcoming.
