Pursuit through Franklin, Anderson and Shelby Counties

Date of News Release: 12/27/2011

(Post 12 Frankfort) -- KSP Post 12 Frankfort received a call that a female subject was possibly suicidal and armed with a handgun. A description of her car was given to post. Troopers located the female in Franklin County and attempted to stop her. The female refused to stop and troopers pursued her into Anderson and Shelby Counties where they used spike strips. All four tires were punctured but the female continued. Legal intervention was authorized which then resulted in the female coming to final rest on the shoulder of the highway. After a brief standoff, troopers gained access to the female and discovered she had stabbed herself several times in neck with a knife. She appeared to be unconscious and was taken to the Franklin County Hospital where she was admitted. She has been charged with Fleeing 1st degree and DUI. The females name has not been released.
