A Salisbury woman turned herself in a day after authorities said she tried to kick in a door at a Statesville Boulevard apartment and took police on a short car chase.

Teresa Christina White, 35, of the 1800 block of Sells Road, was charged Sunday with felony fleeing to elude arrest.


Salisbury police say that around 10 a.m. Saturday, White went to an apartment in the 2300 block of Statesville Boulevard where investigators believed her boyfriend lives.

Officials said she did not get into the apartment. When police arrived, she already was in her car heading toward Ashbrook Road. She continued through to White Oak Drive and Enon Church Road, continuing to speed, a report said.

A report said she was traveling more than 15 miles over the speed limit. The speed limit along Statesville Boulevard is 45 mph.

When White turned onto Cedarwood Circle, a dead end, she turned around in a cul-de-sac and cut through a yard. At that point, police cut off their pursuit, said Police Capt. Shelia Lingle.

Officers obtained warrants for White’s arrest. White received a $1,500 secured bond and has since been released from the county jail.

She has previously been convicted of possessing a weapon on a school campus.
