    A 25-year-old woman was arrested after breaking into a dance and taunting officers at the end of a pursuit Wednesday night near downtown Los Angeles.

    Spike strips were used to destroy the car's tires, but the woman, identified as Kelsey Wood, continued driving on the vehicle's wheels. The pursuit began around 10 p.m. in the downtown area.

    Wood was suspected of driving under the influence, according to the LAPD. She was being held on $75,000 bail on suspicion of "felony evading," police said.

    Wood drove over the spike strips, which appeared to deflate the tires.
