But one woman found herself facing additional charges in an unlucky Irish manner on St. Patrick Day evening.
A Lawrence County deputy spotted Pamela J. Stiltner, 43, of Louisa driving along Blaine Creek Road and knew that she was wanted in Boyd County on a warrant for not appearing in court on DUi, meth possession, possessing drug paraphernalia, and careless driving; so the deputy tried to pull her over.
The car that Pamela Stiltner was driving accelerated instead, leading the deputy on a chase into and through Louisa, until Pamela Stiltner suddenly swerved into a driveway where a 6-year-old was playing nearby.
Officers say Pamela Stiltner then ran behind nearby homes, allegedly looking for someone to hide her. Pamela Stiltner was arrested after one resident told her she needed to leave. Ms.Stiltner was finally apprehended and taken into custody by officer Jeffery Chase Kirk, of the Louisa Police Department.
In addition to the original Boyd County warrant, Pamela Stiltner is now facing seven (7) new charges, which consists of the following:
- POSSESSION CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE 1ST DEGREE, 1ST OFFENSE (METHAMPHETAMINE(,
- FAILURE TO WEAR SEAT BELTS, *FLEEING OR EVADING POLICE, 1ST DEGREE (MOTOR VEHICLE),
- WANTON ENDANGERMENT-1ST DEGREE, *WANTON ENDANGERMENT-2ND DEGREE-POLICE OFFICER,
- CRIMINAL MISCHIEF 2ND DEGREE,
- CRIMINAL TRESPASSING-3RD DEGREE.
Pamela Stiltner was transported to and lodged in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville, KY., in Johnson County; where she is currently being held.
