A 23-year-old Milwaukee woman was arrested and cited for a slew of traffic violations after she disregarded other drivers and raced her Mazda against a motorcycle along North Port Washington Road.
According to the report:
were patrolling in the 9000 block of North Port Washington Road just before 3 p.m. on June 25 when they noticed a car driving too quickly, appearing to be racing someone. The officer made a U-turn and while trying to catch up, had to drive faster than 55 mph and the car and motorcycle were still pulling away from police. He also noted both vehicles were swerving in and out of traffic, cutting off several motorists and showing a lack of concern for other drivers on the roadway.
Police pulled over the car. The driver, a 23-year-old from Milwaukee, told police she thought she was only going 45 mph. She said she wasn't racing and didn't know the driver of the motorcycle.
When the officer ran the DOT check, it came back that the vehicle registration was expired in October, despite her plate having a registration tag for 2012. She also had a warrant through West Allis Police.
She was arrested and taken back to the station, photographed and booked. While at the station, she admitted to knowing the person on the motorcycle, but would not provide a name. Police told her she would get fined for obstruction if she didn’t tell them who the other driver was, but she she said she would accept the fine rather than providing the information.
She was released at 5:10 and cited for reckless driving, operating a motor vehicle without insurance, display of an unauthorized registration, operating a motor vehicle after suspension and interference-resisting an officer.
