MADISONVILLE-If it's Monroe County,
it must be high-speed chase time.
The latest round of pursuing those who
wonâ€™t stop started Friday around 3 p.m. when Monroe County
Sheriff's Deputy Wes Martin was patrolling near Towee Falls and
noticed a red Pontiac Sunfire traveling at a high rate of speed in a
25 mph zone.
Martin said the car matched a
description of one that had been reported stolen and as he turned
around to check on it, the car sped up more and took off.
Martin chased the car at speeds up to
70 mph before it stopped at the intersection of Towee Falls and
The driver, identified as Deanna
Dalton, 38, New Highway 68, provided a registration, but it was not
for the Sunfire. Martin checked and confirmed it was the car reported
stolen earlier. And while she had red paint on her hands from where
she admitted trying to change the color of the car, Dalton said she
didn't realize it was reported stolen from the house next to hers.
