A Nevada woman was arrested after she allegedly drove in the wrong direction on a highway, danced on top of her vehicle and tried to escape police on a child’s scooter, officials said.
A Sparks police officer was traveling to an unrelated job when they noticed several cars pulled over on Pyramid Highway near Disc Drive at about 6 p.m. Saturday.
The cop also saw a white Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV about 20 yards up a hill off the west side of the thoroughfare.
Witnesses told the officer that the driver of the SUV drove south in the northbound lanes of the highway before driving off the road and up the hill.
The driver, identified as 27-year-old Sabra Bewley, was acting erratically and dancing atop her SUV before trying to leave on a kid’s scooter, police said.
Bewley also fought with a Sparks Officer and a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper, who had originally received the call of a wrong way driver, as they tried to detain her, officials said.
She was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, trafficking MDMA, resisting arrest, destruction of property and driving under the influence.
Bewley was brought to a nearby hospital before being booked into jail.
As of Tuesday, she remained in custody at the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, online records showed.
