SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A woman is behind bars Friday after a high speed chase through Sioux Falls.
The Highway Patrol says the woman was parked in the southbound driving lane of Interstate 29 near 41st Street. But when troopers pulled up, she took off onto the median and headed northbound.
Authorities say her speeds reached 85 miles an hour. Troopers did catch up to her after a seven-mile pursuit.
When they approached the car, they found the woman wearing a bikini. They say while she was under the influence, alcohol was not a factor.
