Woman arrested after hitting multiple cars and leading officers on chase

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police are still investigating after a Richland woman drove into multiple cars in a neighborhood before leading officers on a chase.

Officers tell NBC Right Now the woman drove into cars, garbage cans and even tried hitting citizens near the 800 Block of W 6th Ave. in Kennewick around 1:00 Friday morning. Police responded and the woman led them on a low speed chase. Officers deployed spike strips to deflate her tires. Eventually she stopped near Mueller's Funeral Home off Union Street and was taken into custody. 

Police arrested Marlene Jarrett and took her to the hospital to be evaluated before booking her in the Benton County Jail. She's now facing charges for eluding, but officers say there could be more charges later.  

Luckily no one was inside the cars at the time of the accident. Police say they don't know why she was in the area and none of the victims knew the woman. They don't think alcohol was a factor.
