CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — A woman is facing charges of DUI and eluding after a police chase Sunday that spanned the cities of Chesapeake and Virginia Beach.

Chesapeake police say officers were called to a domestic dispute on Fentress Road. At some point one of the persons involved, a woman, fled the scene.

An officer attempted to stop her, but she refused, and the chase continued on Mt. Pleasant Road into Virginia Beach. She was eventually taken into custody in the 1400 block of General Booth Boulevard — nearly 17 miles from the scene.

Police say no one was hurt and no property was damaged. The name of the woman charged was not released.
