According to the Janesville Police Department, police had to use a Taser to get a woman to exit her vehicle after she crashed it into a snow bank as she was fleeing police Saturday morning.
According to a release, officers responded to a report of a disturbance at a North Parker Drive parking ramp.
33-year-old Tanya Kraege fled the ramp in her car when an officer tried to talk to her at about 2:30 a.m., officials said.
According to a release, another officer spotted the vehicle near the 5 Points intersection and attempted to stop Kraege. He turned on emergency lights but Kraege accelerated and led the officer on a 5-minute pursuit through the Look West Neighborhood before failing to stop at a stop sign at West Court Street and North Grant Avenue.
Kraege crashed into a snow bank and became stuck in a vacant lot about 25 feet from the roadway, police said. Kraege tried to drive out of the snow bank and refused to exit the car. Officers used a Taser and were able to take Kraege into custody, according to the release.
Police said Kraege has five past drunken driving convictions but she had a valid license at the time of her arrest Sunday.
She was taken to Rock County Jail and charged with sixth-offense operating while intoxicated, fleeing and resisting, police said.
