A Calhoun woman is facing a long list of charges in Floyd County in connection with an incident back on January 31.

According to arrest warrants, 32-year old Tabatha Denise Baldwin refused to stop for police at Old Dalton Road and the Armuchee Connector.

Police were trying to stop Baldwin because she reportedly failed to move over for a patrol car with emergency lights activated.

Baldwin then fled at speeds of over 110 miles per hour, passing other vehicles, driving over medians and on the wrong side of the road, ignoring traffic signals.

Arrest records state that she was speeding in excess of 100 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour construction zone.

The chase lasted 15 minutes and covered some 22 miles, according to the warrant.

Baldwin reportedly resisted arrest, resulting in injuries to an officer and she allegedly admitted to smoking meth.

She is charged with two counts of fleeing or attempting to elude, three counts of felony obstruction of officers, failure to show due regard, passing in a no-passing zone, DUI, driving on the wrong side of the road, driving on a divided highway, speeding, failure to maintain a lane, failure to obey traffic control devices, a construction site speed violation, and driving on a suspended or revoked license.
