AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

Amarillo police have arrested a woman accused of evading arrest and leading officers on a low-speed chase Wednesday morning.

Joan Lorenz, 60, also had a warrant out of Randall County for criminal trespass.

Around 7:40 a.m., police spotted Lorenz driving in the 7100 block of SW 34th Ave. and pulled her over. Once the officer confirmed Lorenz's warrant, he attempted to remove her from the vehicle.

She reportedly refused to exit her car, put it in reverse, and fled eastbound back onto SW 34th. 

Police said speeds remained low and Lorenz obeyed traffic laws during the chase. Police deployed spike strips at SW 34th and Coulter Street and stopped the pursuit.

She was eventually removed from her car and placed under arrest.

Lorenz was booked into the Randall County jail for her warrant and reported evasion.
