A naked woman is in custody after allegedly stealing a sheriff's vehicle and leading authorities on a high-speed pursuit, before crashing along Interstate 10 in Arizona.


The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the bizarre series of events began when employees at a Gila Bend gas station dialed 911 to report a naked woman causing a disturbance. 

When a sheriff's deputy arrived at the scene, the suspect stole his vehicle and left the scene. The deputy commandeered a citizen's vehicle and a pursuit at speeds of over 100 mph ensued.

Authorities used spike strips to try and stop the suspect but weren't successful. The naked woman eventually crashed along eastbound I-10 near Eloy. She was taken into custody and transported to a nearby hospital.

The deputy was also injured.
