Just after 4 PM officers were dispatched to Dionisio's Metal and Iron, 700 S. Portland Ave, in regards to an individual selling some stolen metal. Upon the officers arrival they encountered a Grey Jeep Cherokee with a trailer attached to it.  When the female driver, later identified as Patricia Russ, saw the officers she drove towards the police vehicles in an attempt to get away. Officers had to move out of the way to avoid a collision.  The driver then took off and briefly lost the officers who began to pursue.  The vehicle was relocated and the pursuit continued lasting for approx 19 minutes. The pursuit ended only after the vehicle drove through a yard in the 1100 block of Maudsley and crashed soon after.  Russ began to fight with officers and was eventually tased before being placed into cuffs.  Russ had multiple warrants for her arrrest.
