BONIFAY — The pursuit of an intoxicated driver came to an end in Bonifay May 25 when a swarm of law enforcement officers intercepted the vehicle on U.S. 90.
Washington County Sheriff’s Office called on Holmes County authorities for assistance around 2:30 p.m. as WCSO chased a Toyota Highlander driven by Susan Clark from South Carolina as she traveled east from Caryville.
Holmes County Sheriff’s Office intercepted the pursuit when Clark entered Bonifay. Deputies boxed in the Toyota with their vehicles, and a HCSO deputy performed the pursuit intervention technique (PIT) maneuver causing the runaway vehicle to come to a stop. Clark was taken into custody.
HCSO said Clark was extremely intoxicated. She faces charges of driving under the influence, fleeing and attempting to elude law enforcement officers in Holmes County, as well as additional charges in Washington County.
