Woman who police said fled in stolen Tesla charged
A 20-year-old woman has been charged in connection with stealing a Tesla then leading Michigan State Police on a chase through multiple counties this week.
Areyon Niley McKay was arraigned Wednesday through the 52-4 District Court in Troy on charges including fleeing to elude and unlawful driving away of a motor vehicle, state police said on Twitter.
Bond was set at $20,000.
The Detroit resident remained at the Oakland County Jail on Wednesday night, records show.
She was arrested after a lengthy pursuit Monday night that started near Interstate 75 and Rochester Road, where troopers spotted the Tesla reported stolen from a Troy dealership.
Troopers attempted a traffic stop but she sped away, MSP reported.
They twice tried a Precision Immobilization Technique, or PIT, to stop her, they said.
It worked when she reached Vernier and the Interstate 94 service drive and Harper Woods, police said.
