Keahbone kept driving southbound until she was able to pull into the woman's driveway a few streets away. Police say Keahbone was being uncooperative and would not follow instructions. They say she finally started to comply until the officer tried to handcuff her.
Keahbone was arrested for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and for driving with a revoked license. The car was returned to its owner.
