Gilbert police used a driving technique on Monday to spin out a vehicle driven by a 46-year-old woman who was speeding away from them, according to a Gilbert police report.

Lilly Grubbs of Mesa ran from police after a 22-year-old Gilbert man reported that she was showing signs of intoxication during a tussle with him at a Circle K at Higley and Williams Field roads.

According to the report, Grubbs’ car door struck another vehicle, and she and the man began to argue about it.

She grabbed the man and tried to grab his cell phone as he called police about 3:30 p.m.

Grubbs led police on a car chase for about 10 minutes, reaching speeds of 60 mph, the report stated.

An officer eventually rammed her from behind and sent her into a spin to end the chase.

Grubbs’ initial blood alcohol content registered at .109 percent, which is slightly more than the state’s legal limit.

Official results are pending.
