Woman arrested for swinging nunchucks while driving

A woman was taken to a hospital for mental evaluation after she was seen swinging nunchucks from the sunroof of her yellow Mustang.

Bonnie Morris, 46, was arrested after police say she failed to stop for an officer, leading him on a slow-speed chase through Carlsbad, New Mexico. Officer Wayne Atchler saw Morris in her vehicle where she was swinging nunchucks out the rooftop window.

She failed to stop when he tried to pull her over, leading Atchler on a path through a residential neighbourhood. She then sped off toward the Artesia Highway, where she reached a speed around 65 miles per hour, police said.

Sgt. Jason Griffin responded to the call and was able to stop Morris after spike strips were deployed. Morris attempted to resist arrest, but was ultimately taken into custody, police said. Charges are still pending.
