An erratic driver was detained after resisting her arrest.

Madison Co. Sheriff Deputies report pursuing a white Suzuki SUV on Walnut Meadow Road as it was reportedly going 68 mph on a 55 mph road. Authorities say the vehicle did not yield to the their lights and instead began driving sporadically into other lanes, speeding up, slowing down, and even coming to complete stops.

Officials report eventually coming to a stop in a Milton lane cul-de-sac. Where according to the citation, the subject, 37-year-old Andrea Roy remained non-compliant and began reaching below the dashboard.

Deputies report having Roy at gunpoint until she finally exited the vehicle and then began resisting police physically. Deputies then had to resort to deploying a taser to calm the situation, which did not work as reports say Roy got immediately back up.

Deputies state they had to take Roy to the ground once more which led her to hitting her face on the pavement, where she finally accepted the handcuffs.

Police asked Roy if she was on any drugs and Roy stated she had smoked something that “wasn’t real marijuana”.

She was charged with speeding, fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest, criminal mischief, and a DUI. Roy was transported to the Madison County Detention center.
