A WOMAN driver told police that she had to “poop so bad” before taking off and leading officers on a high-speed chase, new bodycam footage shows.
Emily Sindt Owings, from Oklahoma, was pulled over last Tuesday when a cop noticed she wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, according to local police.
The 28-year-old did not have any form of identification or insurance details except a medical marijuana card, KARK news station reported.
Once the officer ran her information he discovered that Ms. Owings’ driver's license had been revoked.
When the officer informed Ms. Owings that he would be checking for outstanding warrants, she told him: “But I have to poop so bad.
After asking the officer why he wouldn’t let her go, he responded “because your license is suspended!”
Owings apologized and reiterated that she “didn’t know, otherwise I won’t drive no more.”
“But can I please go home and go poop?” Owings then asked.
The officer then discovered that there was a warrant out for Ms. Owings's arrest for allegedly fighting an officer.
The cop proceeded to ask Ms. Ownings out of her vehicle, informing her that she was under arrest, the news station reported.
“You have warrants in Woods County and they are coming to get you,” the officer said.
But Ms. Owings refused to cooperate and sped from the scene leading authorities to pursue her for several blocks, the media outlet reported.
Ms. Owings allegedly drove through several stop signs before she eventually stopped and surrendered to cops with their guns drawn, police said.
“Can I poop in your car, man?” the 28-year-old asked as she was escorted into the police car.
“You could’ve already been on your way to jail!” the officer said, to which she responded, “Yeah, but not pooping!”
Police said they discovered a pipe with meth when they searched her car following the high speed chase.
Later that morning Ms. Owings was booked into the Garfield County Detention Center on charges that include reckless driving, driving under suspension, and possession of drug paraphernalia, authorities said.
