Multiple law enforcement agencies worked together Saturday evening to arrest a woman who evaded police.
Around 9 p.m. on Saturday, the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office received a phone call about a suspicious vehicle in the 200 block of Taylor Town Road, Capt. Wesley Dellinger said on Monday. Officers responded to the call but did not see the vehicle.
About an hour later, Dellinger said, they received another call about the same vehicle. Officers responded again and confronted the driver, Shannon Michelle Daughtry.
“It was determined she did not have a license,” Dellinger said. “They had a short conversation and while the deputy was speaking with her, she drove off.”
Dellinger said Daughtry continued “at a slow speed, refusing to stop for the deputy.”
During the chase, Mount Jackson and Virginia State police assisted the Sheriff’s Office, and New Market police closed the interstate, holding northbound traffic back, Dellinger said.
Daughtry was stopped just North of Edinburg, around mile marker 280, Dellinger said. Virginia State Police charged Daughtry with driving with a revoked license, resisting arrest and reckless driving-disregarding police commands to stop.
