A drunk-driving suspect is under arrest after a Nevada trooper smashed out her window to prevent a car chase.
NHP trooper Mel Pecson and his partner were called to help out with a speeding and possibly drunk driver at around 2 pm in Pleasant Valley.
They say 24 year Allison Beebe of Reno was clocked going 98 in a 50 miler per hour speed zone on 395. She apparently didn't slow down as NHP followed her with flashing lights. She did stop at a red light and troopers surrounded her car on foot.
They say she started to take off again....that's when Pecson's partner surprised him with quick thinking.
The trooper sustained minor cuts when he climbed through the broken window, but Beebe wasn't injured. she's been charged with a DUI, reckless driving, and failure to obey a police officer
