ABC 6 - A woman has been arrested on drug and firearm charges after a police chase reaching speeds of over 100MPH. She allegedly threw items, which were later recovered, out of the vehicle while in the pursuit.

The alleged driver, Monica Christine Lynch, 45, of Liberty, Missouri then continued to flee out of Cerro Gordo county, through Worth County, and into Freeborn County, according to the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff's Office. Authorities set up stop sticks to stop Lynch, which caused her to drive off the road where officers took her into custody without further incident.
