A recent traffic stop for speeding led to the arrest of a woman whose passenger's said they felt in danger by the woman's driving.

An Arcade Police Department officer arrested Tammy Carter, 45, 221 Hebron Rd., Commerce after a short pursuit on Hwy. 129.

The officer clocked Carter's speed at 80-mph in a 55-mph-zone. When the officer began following Carter, she increased the speed of her vehicle first to 96-mph and then to 109-mph before nearly avoiding a collision with another vehicle and pulling over.
