When the officer attempted to approach Bryson’s car, it fled the scene at a high rate of speed. The landing party then resumed the pursuit.

Bryson reportedly swerved in and out of traffic, driving on the side of the road, reaching speeds of up to 120 mph. The authorities then stopped the pursuit for security reasons.

Law enforcement was able to identify Bryson as the driver. She later turned herself in on Tuesday evening.

Bryson appeared before a judge Thursday morning, where her bond was set at $25,000.

She was charged in one county with fleeing and eluding a police officer, as well as traffic violations, including two counts of speeding.
