A 17-year-old girl who was arrested after a high-speed chase into Sharpsburg last November told a Washington County Circuit judge Wednesday she had no explanation for her actions that night.
"I was speeding and I didn't want to get caught," the distinguished honor roll student told Judge Frederick C. Wright III.
Marijuana and a smoking pipe were found in the car after it was stopped around 10 p.m. on Nov. 12.
"I forgot the stuff was in the car or I'd have thrown it out the window," she admitted candidly.
The girl admitted to fleeing and eluding police and possession of marijuana. She was placed on supervised probation for six months and ordered to submit to an addictions evaluation.
