North Vernon woman accused of fleeing from police

A North Vernon woman was arrested Friday, accused of fleeing from police in a vehicle after a reported domestic disturbance, ditching her vehicle and then hiding at a convenience store.

The incident started at just before 5:30 a.m. Friday morning when North Vernon police were called to the 400 block of Sixth Street and found that one of those involved had fled the scene in a vehicle. Police soon located the vehicle and attempted to pull it over, but the driver sped away, committing other traffic offenses, police say. But after discovering nothing physical had happened during the original incident, police stopped the pursuit.

Jennings County deputies were alerted to the vehicle found abandoned on the side of the road in the 500 block of West Walnut. Witnesses said the driver, wearing only a shirt and underwear had fled to the nearby convenience store. Officers found 34-year-old Amberley R. Day hiding on top of freezers in the back of the store.

She was arrested on preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and reckless driving.
