A Marion woman faces multiple charges following a chase across multiple counties.

Just after 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020, deputies with the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office was patrolling on U.S. 221 South, when they spotted a Chrysler Sebring driving recklessly in the area of Polly Spout Road.

Deputies were able to pull over the vehicle inside the Lucky Strike Campground.

When the deputy approached the vehicle and tried to communicate with the driver, she sped off again, beginning a pursuit into Rutherford County, where other agencies joined in the chase.

The suspect continued to the area of Coxe and Thunder roads in Rutherford before striking an embankment and coming to a stop, at which time she was apprehended.

She refused to give officers her correct name and date of birth, but further investigation showed she was Lisa Marie Mills, 56, of Marion.

Mills was also wanted in Buncombe County for fleeing to elude arrest.

In McDowell County, Mills was charged with fleeing to elude arrest, resisting a public officer, driving left of center, speeding, reckless driving to endanger, unsafe passing on a yellow line, providing fictitious information to an officer and unsafe movement.
