AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Law enforcement has arrested a suspect after a police chase that ended in Amarillo.

Multiple agencies including the Oldham County Sheriff’s Office, DPS and the Potter County Sheriff’s Office were involved in the chase.

According to Potter County Sheriff Brian Thomas, the chase started just 13 miles away from the New Mexico and Texas state line in Oldham County.

Oldham County officials say they received a call around 1 p.m. about an erratic driver on I-40.

Officials say they later received more calls saying the driver was ramming into multiple semi’s along I-40, including a semi that was hauling cars, going around 115 mph to 120 mph on the road.

Officials originally said the Potter County Deputy’s vehicle was hit during the chase, but after further investigation learned that was not the case.

The driver got out of the car and ran away on Arnot Road near the Love’s Travel Stop.

Law enforcement were able to catch and arrest 36-year-old Alexandria Robinson of Lake Jackson, Texas.

She is facing three felony charges and two misdemeanors. Her charges include two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count evading arrest in a vehicle, one count evading arrest on foot and one count resisting arrest.

She was booked into the Potter County Detention Center.

NewsChannel 10 has exclusive video of the scene, including when the suspect tried to kick out the windows of the patrol unit and was restrained.
