In a recent development, a woman has been apprehended after two pursuits by local deputies in Hamilton County. Kaitlyn Ezell, a 36-year-old resident of Chattanooga, is facing several charges related to reckless endangerment and evasion, along with driving on a suspended license for past DUI conviction.

Pursuit Begins: Monday, May 20

The incident started on May 20 when sheriff’s deputies tried to pull over a Nissan Sentra on Standifer Gap Road. Kaitlyn Elizabeth Ezell, the driver, is reported to have fled the scene, leading deputies on a daring chase through a construction zone.
