BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – A Bakersfield woman led deputies on a pursuit that ended in the suspect allegedly attempting to light her car on fire.
On Thursday, January 24, 2019, at around 6:27 p.m. deputies were dispatched for a welfare check on an armed woman in a gas station restroom. The woman had left the gas station by the time deputies arrived.
At around 8:15 p.m., deputies were updated about the suspects whereabouts. At around 10:10 p.m. the deputies located the woman, later identified as 31-year-old Hayley Beebe leaving a gas station in Mojave. Dispatchers were able to contact Beebe by phone, during which time she confirmed that she was, in fact, armed. Deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop but the woman refused to pull over. The suspect got onto Highway 58 driving speeds between 55-90 miles per hour.
The pursuit entered Bakersfield where Beebe drove erratically before stopping on Chester Avenue in East Bakersfield. When she exited her vehicle she was holding a handgun and appeared to be attempting to start her vehicle on fire. The K9 assisted in taking the suspect into custody and the gun was determined to be a BB gun.
Beebe was transported to a local hospital and will be booked into jail for brandishing firearms at a peace officer, fail to yield, and resisting arrest.
