Woman arrested after leading police on chase through North ScottsdalePosted: Updated:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Scottsdale police arrested a woman after she drove into a patrol car and fled the scene.
Around 6 a.m. on Sunday, a Scottsdale police officer saw a female driver in a white pickup truck in a bank parking lot near Scottsdale Road and Carefree Highway.
As the officer approached the driver, later identified as Rebekah Lynn Corwin, 30, she was acting confused. The officer became concerned when he noticed three children in the truck.
Corwin revved her engine and drove toward the officer, hitting his patrol car and pushing it out of the way. She then fled onto Scottsdale Road.
At Carefree Highway and Scottsdale Road, a Maricopa County sheriff's deputy stopped Corwin's truck.
Corwin then hit that vehicle and proceeded south on Scottsdale Road into the community of Los Portones, crashing through the community gate.
Officers were in pursuit when Corwin made her way back on to Scottsdale Road and hit a second Scottsdale police car. That officer sustained minor injuries.
The suspect continued to flee until stop sticks cause Corwin to lose control of the truck and crash into a construction zone and trench near Terravita Drive and Scottsdale Road.
Corwin was taken into custody after a stun gun was used to control her.
The children were unharmed throughout the incident.
Police are still looking into the cause of Corwin's erratic behavior. Drugs are suspected, but not confirmed.
Corwin is a resident of Maricopa. Two of the children, ages 2 and 4, were Corwin's, but the third child, 11, was not.
Corwin faces a long list of charges including aggravated assault of an officer, resisting arrest, endangerment, unlawful flight and leaving the scene of an accident.
