Bond has been set at $50,000 for a 33-year-old Damiansville woman who led police on a three-county chase early Sunday morning.

Stacie Stevenson was charged in Clinton County Court Tuesday with possession of less than five grams of methamphetamine, two counts of aggravated fleeing or eluding police for traveling more than 21 miles over the speed limit and disregarding two or more traffic control devices, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia.

Carlyle Police began the chase along U.S. 50 from Carlyle to Sandoval, where a Sandoval Police Officer successfully blew out one of her back tires with a stop stick. However, Marion County Sheriff's Deputies say that didn't stop Stevenson who continued to travel up to 90 per hour until the chase ended on U.S. 51 at the U.S. 40 intersection south of Vandalia where the Fayette County Sheriff's Department and Vandalia Police had set up a road block.

Stevenson reportedly resisted police when they attempted to get her out of the car. She was taken back to the Clinton County Jail by Carlyle Police.

Marion County Sheriff's Deputies also plan to seek an aggravated fleeing and eluding charge against Stevenson in Marion County Court.

In Clinton County Court Tuesday, Stevenson was given time to hire her own attorney. If she is released on bond, she'll have to agree to random drug testing. Stevenson's next court hearing is set for January 17th.
