(ABC 6 News) - Police say a Rochester woman blew a .28 blood alcohol level after running from police in her vehicle for several hours.

Hope Koutsoukos was eventually arrested in the parking lot of Crossroads College.

Police were originally called by Koutsoukos' husband, who said his wife was drunk and that she was attacking him.

When police arrived she was gone. She later came back and left again before police could get there. Officers then patrolled the area near the home to wait for her.

When officers found her and attempted to pull her over, they say she sped off. Officers called off the short pursuit, but followed her car at a distance.

She eventually pulled into the Crossroads College Parking lot, where police were able to block the exits.

She was arrested for DUI as well as fleeing police.
