Chardon, OH (WJW) — A woman arrested last year in Bainbridge after leading police on a 128 mph chase, while drunk and wearing shear clothing, plead guilty to several charges on Thursday morning.
Erin B. Holdsworth, 28, of Hiram, appeared in Chardon Municipal Court today and plead guilty to charges of fleeing and eluding, OVI and driving under suspension.
Holdsworth was arrested on October 11, 2011 after she led authorities on a chase that reached 128 mph along Route 422.
Stop sticks were used to slow Holdsworth's vehicle and shortly thereafter she pulled to the side of the road.
When officers approached her vehicle, according to Chief Jon Bokovitz of the Bainbridge Police Department, they discovered that she was nearly topless, covered by only a see-through tube top, and wearing g-sting panties and wedge heels.
One hour before her sentencing Holdworth, who had been out of jail on bond, was given a random drug test.
After entering a guilty plea to the aforementioned charges Judge Terri Stupica informed Holdsworth that she tested positive for THC, the active drug in marijuana.
Holdsworth was immediately taken into custody and will be sentenced on September 14, 2012 at 11:00 a.m.
She faces up to 18 months in jail at sentencing.
