A South Wheeling woman landed herself in some trouble on Monday when she reportedly
led police on a low-speed pursuit, refusing to pull over after an officer saw her texting while driving on National Road near Washington Avenue.

When the officer pulled up beside the woman's car, he recognized the driver as 33-year-old Rebecca Smith, and knew she did not have a valid driver's license.

When he attempted to pull her over, she kept driving, through Elm Grove, and finally got stopped in traffic on Bethlehem Blvd.

She is charged with felony fleeing and having no operator's license.
