Atascadero woman leads police on high-speed chase
May 15, 2013
For the second time in less than three years, an Atascadero woman has attempted to flee law enforcement officers by leading then on a high-speed pursuit.
On Tuesday, officers with the Atascadero Police Department and San Luis Obispo County Probation Department attempted to pull over a white BMW driven by Tatum Stewart, 25, for violating the terms of her probation.
Stewart fled in her BMW, reaching speeds of about 65 MPH on surface streets in Atascadero.
Officers arrested Stewart for felony evading an officer and for having fraudulent registration tabs on her vehicle.
In 2010, Stewart was driving with a suspended license and false registration tabs when Atascadero police tried to pull her over for an electrical violation. She fled the police and led them on a chase through Atascadero to Los Osos.
