  • A Leavenworth woman allegedly refused to pull over for a police officer Thursday night because she didn't want to shut off her car's engine, a police spokesman said.
    The 36-year-old woman, who eventually stopped at her house, reportedly told the officer she was worried she wouldn't be able to get the car started again.
    She was arrested for allegedly fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer and driving with a suspended license, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.
    A Leavenworth police officer attempted to stop the woman at 8:38 p.m. on Second Avenue north of Middle Street. The officer was trying to stop the vehicle because the license plate lamp was burned out.
    "The vehicle failed to yield," Nicodemus said.
    He said the car turned west onto Middle Street and then south on Fifth Avenue. The vehicle then headed east on Prospect Street before turning onto Fourth Avenue.
    Nicodemus said the vehicle came to a stop in the 1400 block of Fourth Avenue.
    "She stopped in front of her house," Nicodemus said of the driver.
    Nicodemus said the woman did not speed during the incident.
    "She drove normally but refused to stop for the officer," he said.
