BAINBRIDGE, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) — Ohio authorities arrested a topless woman after she allegedly led them on a high-speed police chase that saw speeds of more than 120 mph.

Authorities aren’t sure where – or how – Erin Holdsworth, 28, of Hiram, started her night on Oct. 11. All they know is that it ended with a car chase down Route 422 that, at its fastest, reached 128 mph.

Officers also know that, when they found her, she was wearing nothing but fishnet stockings, g-string panties and a pair of high heels.

Police say Holdsworth was seen speeding, but refused to pull over. She instead led cops on the harrowing high-speed chase.

Geauga County sheriff’s deputies worked alongside Bainbridge police officers to lay down stop sticks — a tire deflation device meant to put an end to such pursuits for the safety of all involved.

Holdsworth pulled over not long after running over the device, with both of her left tires blowing out after the impact.

It wasn’t until officers approached the stopped car that they noted her revealing outfit.

“She was compliant at that point. However, when we had her in custody, she began to get agitated,” police chief Jon Bokovitz told CBS Cleveland. “She began hitting her head against the wall.”

Bokovitz added that her insubordination continued when she refused to submit to a blood alcohol test.

WJW-TV reports that a docket filed at Chardon Municipal court lists Holdsworth as being charged with one count each of “OVI, refusing a blood alcohol content test, fleeing and eluding, criminal damaging, driving under a suspended license, speeding and reckless operation.”

According to Bokovitz, Holdsworth was then transported and arraigned at the Geauga County Safety Center. Though he was unsure, he believes she was released pending charges.

The station reports that Holdsworth will next appear in Charldon Municipal Court on Nov. 2.
