FT MITCHELL, KY (FOX19) - The 40-year-old woman wanted for fleeing police during a traffic stop has been arrested in Dayton.
Latasha Rippley is being held on several warrants, including a Fort Mitchell police warrant for fleeing and evading police.
In December, police located a vehicle matching the description of one involved in a shoplifting incident in the Crestview Hills Town Center. Once the vehicle was pulled over, the officer walked up and talked to the car for a few moments before the driver sped away into heavy traffic on northbound Interstate 75, according to police.
Sgt. Mike Gross, who initiated the traffic stop, was inches away from the vehicle when it fled the scene and was not injured.
