DUSON — A Lake Charles woman was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Acadia Parish after leading troopers on a 24-minute pursuit down Interstate 10, according to State Police.
Authorities resorted to spike strips to disable the car of Shannon Marie Laycock, 28, who led police about 30 miles eastbound on I-10 from Welsh to Duson, Troop D spokesman Sgt. James Anderson said.
Laycock is accused of making eye contact with a state trooper before speeding away and passing vehicles on the shoulder, refusing to stop and at some point, striking two police vehicles with her 2014 Ford Focus, Anderson said.
One trooper suffered minor injuries and three State Police vehicles sustained minor to moderate damage. The Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office and Jennings, Crowley and Rayne police departments were also involved in the pursuit, Anderson said.
Laycock was booked into the Acadia Parish jail on counts of reckless operation of a motor vehicle, aggravated flight from an officer, speeding, driving on the shoulder, two counts of aggravated battery and resisting arrest.
She faces additional counts in Jefferson Davis Parish once released from jail, Anderson said.
