81 Year-Old Soutbury Woman Leads Police on a Chase in Newtown

The chase resulted for 1.6 miles and then she pulled over.

State troopers in Newtown engaged in a brief chase with a motorist Wednesday. 

That news is not highly unusual but in this case the suspect was an 81-year-old Southbury woman, police told the Waterbury Republican-American. 

Lillian Wright allegedly failed to stop for a state trooper after she was driving on the shoulder of Interstate 84, and it continued for 1.6 miles until she stopped, the Republican-American reports.

1.6 miles? I wouldn't call that a chase. I would call that a case of an older woman who couldn't hear or see any sirens for a couple of minutes.

If you read the full article from the Republican-American, she wasnt an innocent old lady. She was driving under suspension, had an unregistered car and was passing people in the breakdown lane. We should all be thankful she didn't hit and hurt anyone.

Another Patch disaster. Lead headline has Southbury spelled wrong. Anybody have a clue? Isn't anyone at Patch embarrassed?? Aside from that, it appears nothing but prison will stop Granny. She's going to drive no matter what they do to her. That's obvious.
