Metro mother leads police chase with child, drugs in car
OKLAHOMA CITY — A metro mother is behind bars accused of leading police on a high-speed pursuit with her daughter in the passenger seat.
In addition to the young girl, police also found drugs inside the woman’s car.
It all started when a reckless driver sped past a parked police car at N.E. 23rd St. and Kelly Ave.
Those officers gave chase.
By the time the driver reached N.E. 23rd St. and N. Martin Luther King Blvd., police clocked her going 75 miles per hour.
Fortunately, just minutes later, the chase ended along the I-35 service road.
“Police were able to get the car stopped and they found a child sitting in the car as a passenger,” OKC Police MSgt. Gary Knight said. “The little girl was very upset, crying and shaking.”
Police arrested the 29-year-old driver and mother, Quallikko Friday, on scene.
After a search of the car officers allegedly found PCP in the drivers seat.
Police said the mother is just lucky not one got hurt.
“Anytime you have a police pursuit it’s a dangerous situation,” Knight said. “That’s why so often we terminate them because they’re dangerous in nature. Throw in a child and it’s really a dangerous situation. Thankfully no one was injured.”
The suspect remains behind bars at the Oklahoma County Jail.
She’s being held on a $14,000 bond.
