HARPER WOODS, MI — A 20-year-old woman was arrested Monday evening after leading police on a chase in a Tesla she took for a test drive, Michigan State Police said.
Police chased the woman through multiple metro Detroit counties before finally boxing her in on Vernier Road near the I-94 service drive in Harper Woods, police said.
