POHATCONG TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – A woman who is accused of leading Pohatcong Township police on a 4.5 mile pursuit and ramming a police car was caught in Hunterdon County, according to Pohatcong Township police.
On Saturday, police responded to Route 519 in Warren Glen for an erratic motor vehicle complaint, police said.
When officers arrived, they observed a 2014 Jaguar driving at a very low speed and failing to maintain its lane. Officers initiated a motor vehicle stop but the driver, later identified as Nicole Miller of Frenchtown, NJ, refused to stop and led officers on a 4.5 mile police pursuit, police said.
During the pursuit, Miller pulled into the front lawn of a residence and refused to comply with officers commands to exit the vehicle. She drove away again, almost striking an officer. She also crashed into a marked patrol car prior to fleeing into Pennsylvania, police said.
Officers stopped the pursuit once Miller entered Pennsylvania at the Riegelsville Bridge, police said.
A short time later, Miller entered New Jersey and fled into Hunterdon County where she was detained by New Jersey State Police in Kingwood, police said.
Miller was charged with second-degree eluding police and received multiple traffic citations.
No officers were hurt during the pursuit.
Miller was lodged in the Warren County jail awaiting her first appearance on Monday, January 7.
