A chase that began in the Stafford area and concluded near Beasley led to the arrest of a Missouri City woman early Friday morning.

Just before 3am, Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office deputies attempted to stop Elizabeth Louise Wilson, 30, for a traffic violation as she was driving on FM 1092. Instead of stopping, deputies say Wilson sped away, cutting through neighborhoods in Stafford and eventually landing on US 90A heading east.

Wilson drove all the way to Loop 610 in Houston where she headed eastbound until exiting at Fannin where she made a U-turn and began driving west on the loop. She exited the loop onto the southbound lanes of the Southwest Freeway and continued heading toward Fort Bend County.

Several agencies became involved in the chase, which, at times, reached 100 mph. Deputies laid out spikes near the Brazos River turnaround at Crabb River Road. Wilson's vehicle hit the spikes, but she continue driving southwest on US 59, with law enforcement vehicles giving chase.

Officials say her vehicle finally veered off of US 59 near Isleib Road near Beasley with her front tires down to bare metal. Wilson allegedly refused to surrender, locking herself in her vehicle, so deputies were forced to shatter the window.

She received some minor cuts and was taken to OakBend Medical Center in Richmond and then released back into custody of deputies.

Wilson has been charged with evading arrest, a third-degree felony; possession of marijuana; and driving while under the influence. Wilson remains in the Fort Bend County Jail. She will see a magistrate Saturday morning, so a bond has not been set.
