Jackson Police found themselves involves in a high speed chase out of town Monday night which resulted in the arrest of a 19 year-old woman on a variety of charges.  Police Lieutenant Cole Nethercott says it began shortly after 9:00 pm when a REDDI report was called in about a possible drunk drive entering town on north Cache Street. Once the vehicle got into town,Nethercott says officers observed the vehicle some traffic violations and attempted to make a traffic stop.  He says rather than stopping, the vehicle continued around the town square at slow speeds, and then proceeded north from town. As it left town, it increased its speed in apparent attempt to flee from police. Nethercott says the car reached speeds well in excess of the posted limits, and Grand Teton National Park law enforcement rangers became involved near the airport junction where they deployed spike strips and disabled the vehicle.  The driver was then taken into custody without further incident.  Nethercott identifies the driver as Cheyenne Surtees from Edmond, Oklahoma. Nethercott says Surtees was employed here for the summer.  She now faces DUI, eluding and reckless endangerment charges.
