ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – A Rochester woman was arrested Monday after driving through wet concrete in an attempt to flee from police.

According to Rochester Police Department (RPD), a 53-year-old woman was using a bullhorn to yell at people from her car causing multiple people to call in and report her.

Police attempted to pull the woman over for erratic driving when she started to flee.

RPD said the woman went through barricades near north Broadway in attempt to escape police and drove through 150 feet of freshly poured concrete.
