A bizarre police chase leads to a gorge rescue and an arrest.

Officers say a 26-year-old woman was driving when she crashed into a traffic sign on State Street around 4:00p.m. Tuesday.

Police say she then took off and lead investigators on a short chase. Troopers later found her car in a parking lot off of Ambrose Street. When officers approached, the car they found a pit bull inside. A K-9 unit was called in, which later found the suspect hiding in the river gorge.

Emergency crews were then called to rescue the woman who was taken into custody a short time later.
