A woman is under arrest after a high-speed chase on I-90.
According to Montana Highway Patrol, troopers had pulled over a female driver near Whitehall around 2 p.m. Tuesday.
She allegedly took off and led troopers on a high-speed chase, reaching speeds of 130 miles per hour and swerving around other vehicles on the freeway.
The suspect’s car went off the road just east of Manhattan and got stuck in a field. The woman took off on foot, but troopers were able to track her down and take her into custody.

Pat McLaughlin.
MHP also reported that the woman has outstanding felony warrants.
