BENTON, MO (KFVS) -

The Scott County sheriff's office says a Sikeston, Missouri woman faces charges after late night vehicle pursuit.

Lana Carnell, 50, was charged with DUI, driving on a revoked license and resisting arrest.

According to Sheriff Rick Walter, around 1:19 a.m. on Saturday, a deputy tried to stop Carnell after seeing her commit several traffic violations.

Walter says Carnell failed to stop and accelerated the vehicle, weaving dangerously in and out of traffic.

The deputy followed Carnell through Sikeston and into New Madrid County, Missouri where the deputy was eventually able to get Carnell to stop the vehicle.

Walter says after a brief struggle, Carnell was taken into custody.

Sheriff Walter thanks Sikeston DPS, the New Madrid County Sheriff's Office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the New Madrid Police Department for assisting with the arrest.

Carnell was taken to the Scott County Jail. Her bond was set at $ 10,000 cash only.
