A 33-year-old Oklahoma woman was arrested late Wednesday following a pursuit with Cowley County authorities that ended near Winfield.

April Adams, of Kaw City, was booked into the Cowley County Jail on charges of felony flee and elude, driving on a revoked license and no proof of insurance. She also had warrants out of Kay County, Okla. and Cowley County, according to a written report.

A bit before 9 p.m., a deputy on patrol attempted a traffic stop on the Adamsís vehicle, which was westbound in the area of 201st and U.S. 160 highway. The vehicle did not stop and a pursuit began.

Adamsís Dodge Durango and law enforcement vehicles continued west toward Winfield. In the process, Adamsís vehicle struck two deer.

The pursuit continued onto the K-360 bypass on the outskirts of Winfield. Eventually the Durango went into a muddy field and became stuck.

Adams was then arrested.
