Colorado Springs police were sent on a goose chase Thursday night, trying to pull over a driver they said was under the influence of alcohol.

About 7 p.m., police said, they received multiple calls regarding a white SUV that had hit a parked vehicle and a curb and run through several red lights.

Officers saw the car near Research Parkway and Union Boulevard and tried to pull it over. The driver, later identified as Kathie Shuman, refused to stop and began to travel westbound in the eastbound lanes of Research, almost striking oncoming traffic, police said.

Officers were about to intervene to stop Shuman when a citizen traveling eastbound in his truck pulled in front of her, forcing her to stop.

Shuman was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI and other traffic charges.

No one was injured.
