Teen accused of endangering people during police chase
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A woman driving a car with a false Oklahoma tag on it is accused of fleeing from police in two school zones while schools were dismissing for the day.
Sarah Miller, 19, was driving a car at the junction of Ky. 101 and U.S. 68 in Smiths Grove Tuesday when Kentucky State Police attempted to stop her due to her license plate, according to her arrest citation.
Police said she fled at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour passing vehicles and a school bus in curves and no passing zones, according to her citation.
Once the vehicle was stopped, police found marijuana, paraphernalia and two handguns in and around the vehicle, according to her citation.
At some point during the pursuit, she is accused of throwing out a plastic bag containing 140 grams of methamphetamine, according to her citation.
She was charged with speeding 26 miles per hour or more over the speed limit in a school zone, trafficking marijuana less than eight ounces second offense, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance first offense, possession of drug paraphernalia, first-degree wanton endangerment, three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment of a police officer, improper passing, reckless driving, no registration plate, first-degree fleeing or evading police and first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance first offense methamphetamine.
She was lodged in the Warren County Regional Jail. Warren District Judge Brent Potter set her bond at $10,000.
A preliminary hearing in her case is scheduled Friday.
Jail records show she was served with other outstanding warrants.
