UPDATE: Driver Formally Charged For Multi-County High Speed Chase

Posted: Updated:

Police say Sara Williams led them on a chase through 3 counties in very dangerous weather conditions, and apparently had a good time doing it.

Kalkaska County prosecutor, Mike Perreault, said in the courtroom today, "Defendant showed little remorse of her actions and at one point threw her hands in the air saying quote that was fun and exciting."

It's a chase that lasted about 60 miles, starting near South Boardman in Kalkaska County. Kalkaska County Sheriff says, "The officer lost control of his police vehicle while initiating the chase, had an accident and was unable to pursue any further."

Wexford County deputies then joined the pursuit down US-131 right at the county line. Osceola County deputies used stop sticks to end Williams' run 2 miles South of Reed City.

Williams is charged with fleeing from police, having a controlled substance and being under the influence of a controlled substance. Williams faces similar charges in Wexford and Osceola Counties. She's being held on $250,000 bond based on the danger of the chase.

9&10's Katie Boomgaard was in court today as Williams faced a judge for the first time.
