An Oklahoma woman leads officers on a high speed chase by swerving all over the road and it was all caught on camera.

Luz Avilla, 34, told Chickasha Police she didn't stop because she had a preference as to which county jail she wanted to go to.

Dash cam video shows a car traveling about 5-10 miles over the speed limit, but what happens as the officer pulls out after the vehicle, is when things really start to get out of hand.

"Instead of pulling over, the driver accelerated to speeds approximately 90 to 100 miles per hour," said Shannon McClain, Chickasha Police. "When you're doing 90 miles an hour and you're weaving all over the road, just the slightest movements by those other vehicles could be catastrophe."

Just a few miles from the county line, the driver pulled over and told the officer why she took off.

"Apparently the driver did not want to go to jail in Grady County," said McClain. "She wanted to go to jail in Caddo County was her explanation as to why she did not pull over."

Avilla may have stopped the car, but she didn't want to get out of it. The officer yelled at the suspect to get out of the vehicle, but had no luck. He pulled out his gun. 

Back up officers were called to the scene and one by one, all the suspects got out of the vehicle. Several people were taken to jail. Avila is facing several charges including DUI and eluding police.
