Talk about taking one for the road?

A Tennessee woman who was about to be arrested after allegedly leading police on a high-speed chase on Monday could be seen on dash-cam video exiting the car with a beer in hand and taking a few chugs before getting put in handcuffs, authorities said.

An apparently annoyed arresting officer could be seen kicking a can out of her hand.

Julia Myers, 22, faces more charges of more than 10 offenses, including driving while impaired and was arrested Monday.
