Already awaiting a court date on a felony drug count, a 22-year-old Provo woman ended up in jail for the third time this month after trying to elude police on her bicycle and fighting arrest by tooth and clutch.
The woman, who was facing a June 10 hearing on the possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia counts, was caught riding the lightless bike at 3 a.m. Thursday in downtown Provo. When a police officer flipped on his cruiser's lights, the suspect pedaled away, refusing repeated demands to stop.
She jumped off her bike and fled to a room at the Executive Inn, 250 S. University Avenue. Police said she had been "trespassed" from the motel two days before.
