A Casper woman is facing recommended charges including Failure to Yield and DWUI- Child Endangerment, after police say that she failed to pull over for officers, and had a juvenile in the vehicle with her.

Alicia N. Gray was arrested during the early morning hours of March 11th. 

Police say that they were on patrol in the area of East 2nd Street and Country Club Road, when they say they observed a silver Dodge SUV traveling with a burned-out headlight.

Officers say that they attempted to pull the vehicle over, near East 2nd and Country Club, but that the vehicle refused to yield to police lights or sirens. 

It is reported that the driver pulled into a private driveway on the 200 block of Nebraska Street, where police made contact.

Officers identified the driver as Gray. A juvenile was also reportedly in the vehicle.

The suspect told the officers that she had not stopped the vehicle, because icy patches on East 2nd prohibited her from doing so.

Officers report that they did not observe any such icy patches.

Police describe Gray as having watery eyes, slurred speech, and a strong odor of alcoholic beverage. 

An affidavit filed in the case says that Gray said she had at least two beers, and had gone to pick up a friend at an area bar.

Police say that they administered a field sobriety test on Gray, and determined that she was not safe to operate a vehicle, based on the test.

When advised that she was under arrest, officers say that Gray became non compliant with officers, and resisted their attempts to handcuff her.

Police ultimately were able to arrest Gray and transport her to the Natrona County Detention Center.

The juvenile in the vehicle was taken into safe custody.

All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.
