Mugshot: Driver demands $300K to end police chase?

Authorities in North Carolina say an alleged drunk driver led officers on a 15-minute chase before her arrest and called 911 during the pursuit to demand $300,000 to pull over.

Jennifer Herring, 37, allegedly fled a deputy attempting to conduct a traffic stop at approximately 11:25 p.m. on December 10 and drove at speeds up to 70 mph in a 45 mph zone before reaching a dead end and stopping in a private driveway, according to the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office.

In a nine-minute 911 call obtained by WECT, a woman believed to be Herring told a dispatcher, "Are you ready to pay $300,000? That's all I want to know. If you guys want to pay the $300 grand, then I'll pull over for you. I will pull over for $300 grand. That is my offer. I'm asking you to accept it."

The caller insisted she was not speeding and claimed to have a contract with the county that required them to pay $300,000 if they wanted to "declare a false sense of emergency."

Herring was charged with driving while impaired, fleeing to elude arrest, driving while license revoked, careless driving and driving left of center.
