TREASURE ISLAND, Fla. (AP) - A Tampa Bay woman is behind bars after police say she led them on a car chase with her 6-year-old daughter along for the ride.
Lamesha Nikole Ware has been charged with fleeing and eluding, child abuse, and driving with a revoked licence. She is being held at the Pinellas County jail on $20,000 bond.
A Treasure Island police report says Ware was pulled over for speeding Sunday night before she fled from officers. Authorities say the 25-year-old led three police cruisers on a five-minute chase, driving recklessly and going 20 mph over the speed limit.
A relative has taken custody of the child.
