West End woman arrested after fleeing from deputies

A 52-year-old woman from West End was arrested after authorities said she led them on a vehicle chase on Monday shortly after 6 p.m.

In a press release, Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields said deputies were dispatched to a disturbance on Lobelia Road near Vass. A person told the 911 call center that the woman left the home in a red car, allegedly drunk. 

Law enforcement located the car and pulled the vehicle over. However, Fields said Stacy Sutton drove away when the deputies walked toward her car.

“Deputies pursued the vehicle for a short time until the vehicle slid off the road near Vass-Carthage Road and Shady Grove Road, where Deputies were able to apprehend the driver without incident,” said Fields. 

According to radio traffic, the suspect allegedly drove over 100 miles per hour.

Sutton faces eight charges, including felony flee to elude arrest, driving while impaired, reckless driving to endanger, speeding, resisting public officer, open container after consuming, injury to personal property, and failure to stop at stop sign. 

She was jailed at the Moore County Detention Center under a $35,000 secured bond. Sutton is due in court on July 12 and is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
