“Attempted traffic stop, activated emergency equipment, failed to stop…,” the arrest citation states.

The vehicle continued traveling at about 45-55 miles per hour on Ky. 1247 before turning onto Jacobs Loop Road.

According to Mullins, the vehicle was operating in the middle of the roadway before it turned into a residence on Jacobs Loop Road, continued through the yard and came to a stop in the backyard .

Mullins ordered the driver, identified as Amber Moore, 41, of Waynesburg, out of the vehicle.
“…she refused, remained hysterical, was removed and placed into custody,” the citation states.

Moore told deputies that the passenger, Michael G. Coy, 42, of Waynesburg, “told her not to stop,” according to the citation.

Coy was arrested on three active indictment warrants and Moore was charged with fleeing or evading police; careless driving; improper lane usage; and rear license not illuminated.

Mullins was assisted in the arrest by Deputies Austin Coleman and Daniel Napier, Constable Delbert Mitchell, Sgt. Sim Thacker and Deputy Griffin Harness.
