The JCSO was attempting to stop the suspect vehicle for Felony DUI. Clarke County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the area of Harry Byrd Highway and Wickliffe Road and were able to locate the suspect vehicle traveling eastbound on Harry Byrd Highway at Pine Grove Road. The suspect vehicle also failed to stop for the Clarke County Deputies, and the suspect vehicle traveled into Loudoun County.

Purcellville Police Department units assisted units in the vehicle pursuit. The Purcellville PD units deployed stop sticks which ended the pursuit and allowed Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office to arrest the suspect.

A 50-year-old female was taken into custody by LCSO.

Charges are pending in Clarke County.
