Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Instead of taking part in a turkey trot on Thanksgiving, an Ohio woman led police on a wild chase through Bexley in east Columbus early Thursday morning that ended with her crashing her car and getting Tasered.

At the beginning of the incident, police tried to pull over 25-year-old Sally Kurgis after she ran a red light. She pulled into a driveway and then began ramming her car into the police cruiser that pulled in behind her.

With her music blaring and her horn blasting, Kurgis drove through the backyard and led police on a chase through several residential streets, managing to avoid spike strips along the way.

After a Columbus police officer pulled a PIT maneuver, Kurgis lost control of the car. Even though her vehicle was completely stopped, Kurgis still refused to exit the vehicle. Eventually an officer smashed one of her windows and Tasered her before dragging her out through the window.

Kurgis has been charged with felonious assault, fleeing and eluding, resisting arrest, running a red light, backing without safety, driving over a curb, damage to city property, reckless operation of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident.
