SPARKS, Nev. (KOLO) - A woman who alleged drove the wrong way on Pyramid Highway Saturday drove off the highway up onto a hill, danced on top of her vehicle and then tried to leave the area on a child’s scooter, the Sparks Police Department reported.

Sabra Alise Bewley,27, then fought with an officer who tried to detain her, police said.

Bewley was booked on charges that included second offense driving under the influence, resisting arrest, having a trafficking amount of the drug called ecstasy (between a half ounce to an ounce) and destruction of property.

Police said the Nevada Highway Patrol received a report of a white Jeep Cherokee driving south in the northbound lanes of the Pyramid Highway at about 5:52 p.m. A Sparks police officer in the area saw the Cherokee about 20 yards up a hill off the west side of the Pyramid Highway. Witnesses told the officer that Bewley was the vehicle’s driver. Police described her as acting erratically and said she was dancing on the vehicle. Then they tried to leave the area on a child’s scooter.

Bewley did not cooperate with police and fought with them when they tried to take her into custody, police reported.

Police took her to the hospital before taking her to jail.
