UPDATE: Name and New Details Released of Woman who Lead LPD on Chase Friday

LAWTON, Okla_ Police have released the name of the woman leading police in a chase Friday night. 

Dortheia Gorrell was first noticed for her reckless driving by officers at 11th and Gore. By the time the chase ended at Lee and Southwest 38th Street, Gorrell had to be detained by a member of the Lawton Police K-9 unit.

Gorrell drove recklessly, speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, running at least 4 red lights and hitting a police car along the way.

She also tried to escape police by cutting through a busy softball field parking lot near 38th and Lee.

Although no one was hit, shots were fired by a Cameron police officer after Gorrell nearly struck him. Gorrell wrecked her car just seconds later, and that's when she tried to take off on foot.

Officers told her to stop several times, but she wouldn't. That's when they released the K-9.

Gorrell was treated for wounds from the dog at Comanche County Memorial Hospital before she was booked in the Lawton City Jail.
