Dancing Woman Taunts Officers After Pursuit Near Downtown Los Angeles

The woman drove over spike strips, which appeared to deflate the tires, but failed to stop her from attempting to elude police

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.

The pursuit ended when Wood got out of the vehicle and began dancing in front of officers.

She got back into the vehicle before officers arrested her.

No injuries were reported.

It was not immediately clear whether Wood had an attorney.
