The pursuit lasted a short time reaching speeds of over 80mph in a 55mph zone and 70mph in a 45mph zone. The vehicle came to a stop North of 235th and Port Neal Road where Hood ran on foot into a field where she was apprehended. In addition to charges related to the pursuit, Hood refused to comply with commands during her arrest.

Another occupant in the vehicle then took off with the vehicle and deputies pursued until the chase ended in gunfire with one of the two remaining suspects injured with a gunshot wound while the other was apprehended a couple hours later hiding in the area. Read more on that here.
