Brandelyn L. Betts, 34, was taken into custody on Sunday on charges of driving under the influence, felony eluding and other pending charges, according to a release from Idaho State Police.

At 8:14 a.m. on Sunday, Washington State Patrol advised officers of a traffic complaint on Interstate 90 of a vehicle traveling at approximately 120 mph, weaving in and out of traffic and passing on the shoulder of the interstate. Idaho State troopers located the vehicle near Milepost 7 in Post Falls, but discontinued pursuit about seven miles later with concerns for public safety.

The vehicle, a gray 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, was located later near Wolf Lodge, and a pursuit ensued again and continued on Yellowstone Trail to Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive, where officers executed a PIT maneuver. Betts was arrested and charged.

The investigation is ongoing.
