Arlington Woman Arrested after Car Chase

An Arlington woman was arrested early Thursday morning after leading authorities on a car chase.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says 23-year old Kashell Allison refused to yield for a deputy who was trying to pull her over for a traffic stop in Oelwein shortly after 1 am. Instead, she led the deputy on a pursuit through town, reaching speeds over the posted speed limit.

The chase came to an end when Allison crashed near the intersection of 7th Street Southeast and 1st Avenue Southeast.

Allison was taken into custody and faces several charges, including possessing methamphetamine with the intent to deliver, operating while intoxicated, eluding and speeding.
